dear Meek I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I am in a similar situation. My new workplace doesn't know about my situation yet but I feel sure they will help because that is what I would do if I was the boss. As a manager, I do extend as much assistance as possible. There is always a way to make it work out and you might be surprised to know how many staff members need a change in work conditions at any given time. Let your work help you. It can be a very supportive - and humbling - experience to see how willing people are to accommodate yor needs. If you are concerned about taking too much time, share your situation and be guided by what they say. It is important to keep in touch with work too and having that to focus on may be helpful for a while. I think it's also important to take each day as you go and not try to predict too far ahead what you'll need to do. And remember to look after yourself. If you get worn out, that won't help your dad. Be well and take care, Rosa
