Thankful for YOU!

In just a few days I will be 6 years post-op from my decompression surgery. For the rest of my life, Thanksgiving and Chiari will be forever intertwined- which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The week I spent in the hospital that year was full of complications, but I came through it even more grateful for the support from this community. I was a teenager when I got diagnosed and went only three months from diagnosis to surgery, and you were the ones who have held my hand throughout this journey.

So for Thanksgiving this year and EVERY year, I am thankful for you all. Thank you for those who have reached out, thank you for those who have answered my frantic PM's in times of true distress, thank you for those who answer my questions, thank you for those who are a part of this community and allow me to follow your lead in helping those who are just beginning this journey.

I'm so happy to be 6 years post-op, and I'm even happier that I found ASAP.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

What a beautiful post! ASAP and my ASAP friends are at the top of my gratitude list as well! I was six years post-op (pfd) in September so although I'm much older than you (43), we're at about the same place in our journey.

For all who walk this path of wellness, I am blessed to have you with me on our journey.

Have a Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Be blessed my friends, Kim
