Ditto what I said last post.

Sick Leave for Family Care or Bereavement Purposes

Most Federal employees may use a total of up to 104 hours (13 workdays) of sick leave each leave year to-

  • provide care for a family member who is incapacitated as a result of physical or mental illness, injury, pregnancy, or childbirth;
  • provide care for a family member as a result of medical, dental, or optical examination or treatment; or
  • make arrangements necessitated by the death of a family member or attend the funeral of a family member.

A covered full-time employee may use up to 104 hours (13 workdays) of sick leave each leave year for these purposes. Part-time employees and employees with uncommon tours of duty are also covered, and the amount of sick leave permitted for family care and bereavement purposes is pro-rated in proportion to the average number of hours of work in the employee’s scheduled tour of duty each week.

Amazing some of the minutia you need to look into when writing fiction.
