Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stood
Thank you everyone for all of your information. I did look into the short term disability and fmla. I do not believe that I will be eligable for any of the benefits as the company I work for has under 50 employees. I will be taking my vacation time, and anything else probably unpaid. I will have to have a serious converstaion with my employer tomorrow. I do hope that they are understanding. I think at this point I am more nervous about losing my career rather than the surgery. Someone else wil have to step into my position while I am gone.
THe surgery is set for Febuary 16th. I will be at a major research hospital that I am not familiar with which also adds to the aprehension.
Hope all are well
