Little Background: I live in the Marshall Islands, my family lives in Ohio. I have a chance to go for training in the States in a couple weeks, after which I'd visit my parents (the airfare is a KILLER from here, so when I get training I go home for a bit too). This particular training ends on March 17. My mother has leukemia. She was diagnosed in 2001, went into remission and has it again. She is going into the hospital on March 23, having the transplant done on the 27th.Her sister is coming out for her part of the bone marrow transplant this week, and if I can possibly visit my mom BEFORE the training I will, so I can see my aunt too, but it's cutting it so close that I don't think I can pull it off. My little boy's third birthday is on the 26th... SO, if I go after training should I...
A- go see my mom for a few days, help my brother and dad get her settled in the hospital and get back for my little boy's birthday
B - Stay with my family until after my mom's transplant, and then celebrate my son's birthday on another day (with extra guilt presents I'll pick up in the States)
Vacation days aren't an issue. I can use sick leave, and I have plenty of that for either option.
