Well, this is not good news. My grandmother is in the hospital and we are all very worried. I might have to drop everything and go to Florida to visit her or help my mother take care of her.
I canceled my vacation plans so I don’t have a problem getting off work to deal with family issues. I don’t think they would give me a hard time about it, but you never know. I would never want to take advantage of my boss and his good will, either. So I think the prudent thing is to cancel the trip and just stay flexible until we know more about what’s going on with my grandmother.
