I had a dream that I found out that I had Chiari.  I was devastated.  I cried.  I didn't know how I was going to function with Chiari for the rest of my life.  I didn't want to have brain surgery.  Then, in my dream, I thought about Ashlyn and her strength.  I dreamt about her having surgery and how brave she was, and that if my daughter could do it, then I could do it.  I wanted to be strong for Ashlyn.

Thankfully, this was all a dream, but it really got me thinking.

Ashlyn has taught us so much during this Chiari journey, but most of all, she has taught us about HOPE.
