    I did, when my father had his bypass operation, on my mother's instructions. She never forgave me for doing as I was told.

    Of course it is, regardless of age or sex.

    But if it was affecting the your work / my work, then I would send you home / ask to go home.

    Some people hide behind work, some use work to distract themselves, some need to go to work, some are wanted to be at work, some should be with their parents ...

    Really, it depends on what you need and what your parents need. It is not a question of weakness or strength. Some cry easily other suffer in silence ...

    What? Because you are upset and frightened at the possible implications? That's not a loser's behaviour. That's a lover's behaviour.

    You're OK.

    You're not a loser. We're not talking about some minor operation here.

    We all suffer differently.

    Don't feel bad for your emotions, nor feel bad if you don't have any.

    Do whatever feels natural to you

    Hope everything goes well.

    I think whether to go in would be a personal choice, some people prefer to keep busy and that's okay...some wouldn't be able to focus on work and that's okay too

    as for crying, I would absolutely not feel bad about it, it's a massive thing to go through and no one will think less of you for not being able to cope

    I personally wouldn't go to work as I wouldn't be able to function with worry but I can understand why some people would choose to go to work as they would find the distraction helpful.

    My mum's situation was completely different; but this is what she said. She needed the distraction.
