Come up with some medical excuse. Cortisone shot for your lower back is my go to excuse, it's an easy procedure and doctors typically ask people to keep it easy for a day. Good luck

Also I’ve taken the most PTO on this project already and have been great communicating thag but I don’t know how to make an excuse that I need do last minute PTO

See I always get weary with medical excuses because I don’t want to jinx myself, never good to lie about medical stuff 😅 maybe that’s just an Asian thing.
