Ckasnoff:  I would honestly leave it up the employer to tell you what they need/prefer – in this circumstance.  Be open, and up front with them.  Explain that due to health issues, you cannot commit to this second job at the moment, but do not want to leave them high and dry either.  Let them know you are willing, and want to put in your two-weeks notice, but at the same time, understands that it may be a bigger inconvienance to them, because at the moment you cannot gurantee you can even work those shifts, whether it be calling off or leaving early.  

Let them tell you their opinions, and suggestions.  If they want to risk keeping you on for two weeks, knowing you may need to call off for medical issues, so be it.  They may choose to give your hours to someone else entirely, and ‘resign’ your position immediately.

At the end of the day, you want it to be as amicable as possible, in the event you can go back at some point, or need a referance down the road.  I would certainly understand (as a Supervisor), and would welcome this type of honest conversation!!

I would just sit down with your boss and explain everything that is going on. I’m sure they will understand. It’s not like you’re just quitting because you don’t want the job anymore. You need to quit because you’re having health issues and need the time to go get this figured out. Maybe suggest that you can try to work some shifts over the next 2 weeks but you probably won’t be able to make all of your scheduled shifts. More than likely, they will tell you they understand and tell you there is no need for you to come in anymore.
