Can someone help? ?

I’m learning English and I need help from you all. 

I requested a half day on the 30th for a dentist appointment but I just realized my appointment is for the 31st. My boss approved it but now I have to say that I made a mistake..can someone help me write an formal email I don’t want to say too much just that I made a mistake and it’s actually for the 31st 

Or is this okay 

Hi Lara, 

Thank you for approving my half day for the 30th, however I just realized I made a mistake on the date. My appointment is for Friday, January 31st at 1:00 pm.

    I wouldn't say "Hi Lara" in writing to my boss.  I'd just say "Lara"  etc.

    The rest of your message is basically okay.  Just a couple of changes


    Thank you for approving my half-day off for the 30th.  However I just realized that my appointment is for Friday, January 31st at 1:00pm.  Could I please take my half-day on Friday instead of Thursday?  Thank you.
