If I understand correctly, you are not leaving immediately.  You plan to test over the next day and a half and then leave to attend to your family issues.  First, I would ask you if you wanted to leave immediately.  Your family issue is certainly more important than your test responsibilities. 

What is my role in this scenario?  Am I a Test Lead?  If so, I would discuss the issue with our Test Manager and work out a solution.  My plan would be to extend the business day over the next few days and ask other testers if they would like to help us execute your test cases.  I would probably decide to handle your re-tests and regressions myself.

Then I would ask the other testers if they would help me execute your test cases.   Depending on the number of testers who agree, I will recover some to nearly all of the lost hours and it will likely be possible to execute your entire test suite. 

Then I would inform the Project Manager of our plans and let him know that we will likely be finished executing your test cases over the next few days.  I will also tell him that you are leaving soon to attend to your family issue.
