Just got out of a meeting with my boss where I explained why I was flying out of state next week for a medical visit. It made me very nervous, starting that conversation, because you never know how someone is going to react... like they are going to come over the table and attack me or something. Well, she didn't attack me, she was excited about it and asked some questions about the process, and let me know that she was happy that the medical trip didn't have to do with any major health issue :)
The flight will be next Thursday night, and I'm trying to be a model employee while taking time out for conferences, surrogacy visits, family business, and *gasp* actual vacation! But I get the impression that the trip to California will be worthwhile, so I'm looking forward to that.
