Well, not so much. I emailed them last Tues with questions about the FMLA since everything changed, and I have yet to hear back. I stopped trying to call because I feel a deep need to have a paper trail with these people. I will need to flip from intermittent FMLA back to block FMLA and then leave of absence because of surgery, but yeah, they don't respond. Must be nice to have a job where you can just ignore calls and emails?!
Maybe when I get to work today there will be a response in my inbox...
I meet with the surgeon this afternoon to plan surgery. I have a bunch of questions for her. Unfortunately work is part of the reason I'm worried about the surgery. If I'm out for more than 2 weeks they will want me to go leave of absence (I will be out of FMLA at that point) and if it hits the end of the month that the leave starts in, I will have to COBRA insurance---with an unresponsive HR.
Nothing like a bit of stress along with your cancer....
