Private Landlord -- Rent Control

Our landlord has decided not to renew our lease which means we need to be out January 31, 2015. However, My husband has just been diagnosed bi-polar and is going into a 12 week hospital program January through April 2015. I will be writing to the landlord asking for a holding over of 90 days, and have already sent the landlord a letter from the dr. saying how important it is for my husbands health NOT to move in the middle of the program. If the landlord refuses to allow additional 3 month/90 day rental, how quickly can he evict us? Does a medical condition have any merit? I've heard eviction can happen in 10 days. How can I extend the court process? Much thanks,
