I have to have surgery mid-Feb and will not be able to work as a part-time ski instructor for the rest of the season. I do love to ski and teach and am having a very hard time saying good bye to my job, but I do want to be honest with my employer in order to have the door open to me again next winter. This is my second season working for this ski resort; I have worked in other departments including ski patrol for the last 11 at this same resort. Do I call out my illness by name? Or simply say the facts: surgery date and recovery time and offer to keep them posted on my recovery? My small town can't do the procedure, so I will have to travel and be out of town for a week. Thanks.
