I have been caregiving for my mother for years. She had open heart surgery about 9 years ago and had been doing fine until recently. She nearly passed a few months ago because of shoddy healthcare and our lame cardiologist who didn't catch the fact that she was in heart failure!! Go figure?!
On Friday we just found out she's in Class 4 CHF - means almost the end stage of heart failure and I was at the hospital waiting to talk to the surgeon for nearly 8 hours. I could not leave since I wanted to catch him. It was exhausting and scary. FInally he delivers the news and we're heartbroken. I have been keeping my boss updated on the events because I need my job.
All I get is from him is an email asking me how long was I out dealing with my mothers. IS this ALL these assholes care about?!!! Does he really think I enjoy being in a hospital with my mother and worrying and feeling scared and sick then being at the office?
Help!! How do I get over these murderous feelings towards a boss who doesn't give a damn. I'm on FMLA so he can't fire me - do they purposely try to make you feel bad as much as they can because you are on FMLA? He doesn't care about his folks they live in a different state - whatever - but I care about mine and my job will never come before my mom. I am looking for words of comfort to help me get over this. I have always been a good worker and never fell behind in my job. Ever. Now I'm starting to not care what he thinks -the SOB! How can people be so uncaring?! I'm sorry but I'm really mad and I'm doing the best I Can between caregiving and working full time.
