Going to alabama again

my partner and her mom are going to alabama again. they went over two years ago when my mother in law’s sister was dying from cancer. my partner was down there for almost 3 months. my mother in law came back after a month. now my mother in law’s brother in law (i know confusing) is having brain surgery after they found blood on the brain. they said they will be back by wednesday. my partner’s a bleeding heart they will make her stay longer and she doesn’t even know if anyone at her work will cover for her. i’m just worried about her job since she worked so hard at it to get where she is. her dad was real hard on her when she quit her last job to go down there.

i don’t do well without my partner i suppose thats where the dependent personality comes in. i’m expected to feed all the animals. two dogs, two guinea pigs, two crested geckos, one bearded dragon, one cat, one parakeet and one rat. the only animal i may not have to worry about feeding is my in law’s bigger dog. my father in law will gladly take care of that animal.

i think i’m just scared all these animals are a lot of responsibility

The Family Medical leave Act gives her the legal right to three months off work to take care of a sick family member. As long as she is a full time employee, they can’t fire her. And if they do, you can sue them.

Thanks @ninjastar, that makes me feel a bit better. i didn’t mean to sound selfish. she said with her certifications she can get a job at any nursing home or doctor’s office .

It is not selfish to be worried about your partner’s job. That is the opposite of selfish. You guys have goals, and it is reasonable for you to worry about this latest obstacle.

they said they aren’t going, but my partner got the weekend off to go so i guess she has to work next weekend. she keeps saying she is going to help me clean but she hasn’t done it yet. she keeps making excuses.
