A: You should have asked to take a leave of absence under the federal Family Medical Leave or California Family Rights Act Leave to care for a sick family member, instead just quitting without notice.

I suggest that you explain that you had the right to take an immediate legal protected medical leave and they did not advise you of that right. (Hopefully, you told a supervisor or HR about your family situation. If so, the employer had an obligation to inform you of your rights.)
