Dear Professor Smith,
I was admitted to the hospital on June 9, 2004 because of acute appendicitis. My doctor has suggested an immediate operation. It is expected that I will be well in about 10 days and discharged on June 19, 2004. I am writing this note to ask for sick leave for the coming two weeks.
Thank your for your consideration.
