It is a happy time for me to inform you that I am going to be father soon. As my wife is going to be admitted to Saint Howard Hospital on April 2, 2011, I would request you to provide me office leave for at least 1 week starting from March 30, 2011. As other untouched work needs to be completed by me, I will definitely be prepared to have those finished within timeframe before my leave starts. I make sure that there is no difficulty on your side while I handover any particular work assignment back to my colleague in a particular situation.
This is a high time for my wife which requires my care and togetherness during these times. I would be waiting for your formal approval so that I can take necessary steps to execute my duties towards the office as well as to my family needs.
