Definitely plan to be there for the surgery. Do not worry about your project. Give them a heads up now even if you don’t know the surgery date yet. Family first.

Be there in person for her the day of surgery - stay with her prior. Much more important than work.

It’s scary but the news so far is positive. My mom had the same thing right before Christmas and surgery a week later. It went as well as could have and she’s doing great now.

So sorry to hear this. Devastating news, but stay positive and reach out if you need anyone. Definitely don’t have to tell your whole team, but consider letting your SM know in case you need time off. Also don’t forget about EY assist if you need more support! Well all be thinking about you and your family! 💛
