If you qualify for FMLA, then they cannot deny your request.  You would need to phrase it as still providing care and comfort, and a doctor statement that your care in will help alleviate your father's pain.

You qualify if you have been working full time for the last 12 months before you requested FMLA, and the company has at least 50 people at your plant or building
