DateAdd(DateInterval.Day, 4.0, Now)

where the '4.0' value is the amount of days you wish to add/subtract

and 'Now' is the date value you wish to change

Here are some more examples:

        Dim myDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now

        MsgBox(myDate, MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Initial DateTime")

        ' change the date using relative adjustments
        myDate = myDate.AddDays(1) ' add one day
        myDate = myDate.AddMonths(1) ' add one month
        myDate = myDate.AddYears(1) ' add one year
        MsgBox(myDate, MsgBoxStyle.Information, "After Relative Changes to DateTime")

        ' change the date using an absolute date while preserving the time
        myDate = DateTime.Parse("10/29/1973 " & myDate.ToLongTimeString)
        MsgBox(myDate, MsgBoxStyle.Information, "After Absolute Change to DateTime")
