Dear Mrs. Julia,
I am writing sincerely to request some days off for the coming week starting December 12th returning December 19th. As I explained in our weekly meeting, I had an accident a couple of months ago and I am taking some medications.
I’m afraid that I need to have a surgery on my brain, and I am not healthy right now. Also, I am feeling drowsy while I am taking my medications. I believe that it is not even worthwhile for the company to have me during this challenging time. What’s more, my doctor didn’t allow me to work for a single week.
Notwithstanding my surgery and serious illness, one week of resting will cheer me up and affect positively on my physical and mental health.
I had a meeting with Nicola (Accounting Coordinator) yesterday, she approved to take care of some urgent matters and responding to my emails on my behalf. She is really organized and trustworthy as we have been working together for a long time.
Although I apologize for any inconvenience caused, I’m thankful for your support and understanding.
