On Monday I had to take some emergency personal time after finding out that my mom was hospitalized for a mental health breakdown. I didn't give the details to my manager, only that she was hospitalized. She lives somewhat far away from me so for the past 2 days I've been staying at her place and working from home there.
I work in software so it isn't abnormal for someone to work from home, and our workplace is really flexible with scheduling. My manager is also a really nice understanding guy. We have a couple deadlines coming up, but nothing is critical at the moment.
I have a meeting (unrelated) with my manager when I get back and if it isn't weird I wanted to thank him for being so flexible. I'm a little worried to go into detail about the situation since I think it would be inappropriate/uncomfortable to mention.
Would it be acceptable to thank him? If so, any advice on what to say would be really appreciated
