    Welcome to the forum.

    I assumed "xxx" refers to the name of the clinic/hospital rather than the time. The time would be unnecessary as you have already said "Tomorrow morning". Remember that we don't put a space before a comma but we do put a space after one. Having said that, I would replace the comma with "and".

    Tomorrow morning, my wife is having/will have an operation at [name of clinic] and I need to pick her up around lunchtime. Therefore, I would be very grateful if you would allow me to work from home tomorrow.
    Thank you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you.

    I'm sorry, but it sounds too formal to me, doesn't it?

    I'd be very grateful if you allow me to work from home tomorrow.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
