Ask HR for details on your short term disability and go from there getting documentation etc.

Notify your boss and If you don't have short term disability, get it. Then coordinate with HR. Had a medical emergency two years ago that required three surgeries over the span of 6 months. Short term disability SAVED MY ASS.

Waiting for official offer document is stressful. Interviews done. Negotiation done. Verbal offer received. Just filled out app/reference/background documents. Official offer letter is going through legal review. Working honestly on my current project, while trying to time exit is not fun. I'm trying to not sign up for more work because it will feel like a broken promise to my teammates whom I like.
