After a few days, Sterling decided to ask Jim to take care of the whole bed. She explained, "At first, Jim warmed up by making just his side but [I] eventually decided to ask [my] husband if he could take care of the whole thing. He did and started playing with the pillow arrangements to make me laugh."
