The Sleeping Father
A person with sleep apnoea has a peculiar way of sleeping. When we were children we found it funny at times to see fat people sleeping during the daytime while watching TV or reading the newspaper. We liked to see their chests stop moving up and down while sleeping and they seemed to stop breathing. We also found it hilarious to see them wake up in a kind of shock triggered by the lack of oxygen to their brains as they choked and sputtered.
However, sleep apnoea is not funny at all. Sleep apnoea, which is caused by blockage of the extra soft tissue in the throat in the airway, can lead to death. All these things Michael Kimball saw in his father.
