ThinkOrSwim - count # of bars

Hi there!
I am wondering if anyone out there knows how to modify the "GetEventOffset" function on TOS to count # of bars from a certain date? The reason I am looking for this is to offset a plot on an hourly chart offset from data 5 days ago. Being that the number of bars on an hourly chart per day fluctuate based on exchange and after hours trading, I can't specify "from 40 bars ago" (5days x 8bars) to get the data from 5 days ago.

The closest thing I found is using the following code which counts # of bars since last conference call. What I want is to modify this code to output #of bars since close 5 days ago.... Does that make sense?
 "The last conference call was " + 
  GetEventOffset(Events.CONFERENCE_CALL, -1) + 
  " bars ago");
