Finally the whine becomes a cry and I realize it is certainly not Jeff, nor is he even appearing to hear it
So I get up and I am in pitch darkness, as well, completely blind. I go over to his side of the bed and can hear Creighton crying but I can't find her. I am feeling around and beginning to worry. I felt her feet finally and just assumed I couldn't see her or feel her body somehow, but then I realized her WHOLE body is under the bed except for her feet.
I don't know HOW in the world she got under there, but she was stuck. I also don't know WHEN she got there. I didn't hear anything until she started to whine. She had lines on her face like she'd been there a long time. HOW did this happen? WHY did she go under the bed? I don't know any of these answers.
But I do know that our frame is broken on the foot end of our bed and it really freaked me out. She could have been crushed. I woke Jeff up carefully telling him to roll towards my side of the bed slowly because Creighton was stuck under his side of the bed. As soon as he rolled over she was able to get wiggle herself out. She was so scared. I don't think she knew where she was. I really want to know how long she was there too...but I am just glad she is okay and wasn't crushed or really stuck...
...and goodness knows what is UNDER our bed...not me and I make it a point to rarely look under there just in case! :)
Thankfully I got her to go back to sleep in her bed and she even slept till 9!
But the whole thing was just so bizarre!
