Enough time off from work?
By nervousvet on 19 Jun 2012
Hi ladies, thanks so much for all the helpful info. I am really enjoying this site and I'm sad I didn't find it earlier when I was researching. I'm scheduled for July 2 - and it's being paid for by the VA. I don't have health insurance, only the VA. My job has very little benefits and I accrue days off at 1.67 days per pay period. So I will only have 8 hours (1 day) by the time my surgery comes around. I don't work on the Monday I am having surgery, I am taking my 8 hours on Tuesday, and then I have the 4th of July off. The 5th and the 6th though I will be working 2 12 hour days that involves 6 hours of driving each day (long story to describe my job). It's really the only option I have. With my rate of accrual it will be years before I have "enough" time off. Am I crazy to even try this?
