T minus 49 hours until "S" day - found a site for Chiari t-shirts

So I'm just under 49 hrs. away from my surgery. I feel ready. I'm packed and only have a few minor things to take care of before Tuesday, which is great. I've told my young sons (4 and 2 1/2) - they understand they won't see mommy for a few days and when I have a grey rubber bracelet that I can't pick them up. I've given my one daughter permission to go to school the day of surgery (still working on my other one) that for most of the time they wouldn't be able to see me while they would be in school anyway.

So I think I figured out my trigger event that began my symptoms. I'm a big space nut (NASA that is - LOL) and in April my husband sent me down to see one of the last space shuttle launches - it was scrubbed (boo - but the experience was still amazing). I was reading Gabby Giffords book (a gift from my sons) and her husband was recounting that particular launch (he is an astronaut). It hit me while I was there I rode the Shuttle experience ride (simulates a shuttle launch) - very shortly after that I began w/ symptoms. Now I can tell my n/s I know the trigger.

The website I found was zazzle.com Here are some sample t-shirts: attached to posting. They are offering 20.12% off today.

Does anyone have any last minute advice they want to share. Katrina and Tara have given me details about their surgery and what to expect. If anyone else wants to provide I'm listening.

Peace and Love,

Carrie :)

I will be thinking of you and praying for you on Tuesday. It sounds like you are ready. Be patient with yourself while recovering. You will be home again and with your children in no time! I'm sure you are on to something with the shuttle simulator.

Good luck,



You will be in my prayers. You are in the very best of hands. If you ever need anything and I can help just message me.
