Hey ladies...I haven't posted in forever. I hope all of you are doing well. I had a quick question that I was hoping someone would know the answer to. I've been working at my new job for 6 months. I get 7 paid days off a year. DH had knee surgery last Thursday and after spending the night at Children's hospital, the doctors have decided to put tubes in his ears due to a severe ear infection that has lasted over a month and failed to respond to antibiotics. He goes in for his pre-op tomorrow and surgery on Wednesday. His fever has remained high. I called my HR manager and she said that this may not be a serious enough case to qualify for a week unpaid due to family medical leave. I don't have enough paid days off accumulated to take the whole week off, and I have no one to take care of my kids with my husband completely immobile. Do you think this case is enough to qualify to use a week of FML leave? Thank you so much for your advice.
