Charmin, if you're in the US, they have to allow you 12 weeks per year for major medical or family major medical (FMLA). Generally you get paid from your sick and vacation leave, although some employers don't make you take that. As far as short term disability, that will depend on your employer's policy. Check with your Human Resources department on that.
