    Forgive me but I'm an old legal secretary. I'm just careful about written statements. When you go for another job, you want to put your best foot forward. You will be asked if you are able to do the job for which you are hired and most likely will have to sign some pre-employment paperwork to that effect. Personally, I feel more comfortable knowing there isn't a piece of paper floating around a file somewhere where I said I was having a problem in that area that could later be held against me as making a fraudulent statement. This is why I advise something kind of vague in writing. Heck, you don't have to give any reason at all in your letter but I would state due to "circumstances" and be flowing with the grattitude for a good experience. Like I said, years as a legal secretary. It's probably made me a bit paranoid.
    Thank you, that actually makes alot of sense to me. You saved me, I was going to put that down(illness).now I am not.... I will term it "personal circumstances"...good?

    Check the hospital policy. They don't usually allow leave or vacation time to count as the last two weeks.
    I think they pretty much do whatever suits them at any given moment, LOL. It all depends on who you know and how good your relationship is with your boss, IMHO.

    A word of caution about FMLA - don't screw your self up. Being on FMLA and violating it might carry federal punishments. Ouch! Just be sure to follow the FMLA rules to the letter. :uhoh21:

    Chat with an employement attorney, why don't you? Hmmm? Check with HR director maybe, too.
