So my PTO time is officially gone until June 7 when I refresh my days. I had to use the last of it for emergency surgery for a potential molar pregnancy. (my family has been plagued with health issues this year! we thought we were all relatively healthy).
My daughter is once again (UGH) coughing with a dry unproductive cough and I am so worried. I hate leaving her with anyone else (even her dad sometimes!) I just feel like I want to be with her and monitor her myself when she has anything respiratory going on. So it looks like I will be forced to file FMLA to protect myself. My job hasnt given me any issues yet but I want to be cautious.
I am a little worried about filing… for some reason I feel like it's a negative strike on my record and I have been hesitating on filing.
Has anyone else filed? Why am I so worried about filing? (maybe I just worry too much in general LOL – something new to me on this whole parenthood journey)
