    for me to reach it

    Can one use:
    1) I was lying on the bed. He pushed the TV close enough to reach it.
    instead of:
    2) I was lying on the bed. He pushed the TV close enough for me to reach it.


    Can one use:
    3) I was lying on the bed. He pushed the TV close enough to reach it once I was on the edge of the bed.

    instead of:
    4) I was lying on the bed. He pushed the TV close enough for me to reach it once I was on the edge of the bed.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    No.
    No.

    (All sentences would be better with "reach" rather than "reach it".)
