hello an welcome, remember, especially here, there are no stupid questions. I am on the Family Medical Leave Act, I was fortunate in the fact that when I was in the hospital at the begining of last year our administrative assistant had every thing ready and set up. I do have to send in quarterly reports from my doctor to stay on it. Youre daughter will need to get ahold of some one in human resources to get the process started, when you take the paper work to the doctor make sure you explain to him that you need to be allowed a certain amount of time off to deal with your illness. And I believe the answer to your last question is yes. It is my understanding that being on fmla I am protected from lossing my job. I hope this helpa.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
