Get-Well Notes and Letters
Whether you're sending a get-well card or writing your sentiment on stationery, your get-well message should be an optimistic, cheerful one. If appropriate, such as for a friend or relative coping with a lengthy recovery time following major surgery, you'll want to offer any assistance you can provide to help out.
Acknowledge the reason for your message without being overly dramatic about it. “Your fall on the ice” is more sincere than “that unfortunate accident.”
I was sorry to learn that you sprained your back when you fell on the ice. I'm writing this note to let you know that you're in my thoughts while you recover, and to let you know that you don't need to fret about keeping your walks and driveway cleared. Until you feel up to doing the work yourself again, I'll gladly bring my snowblower next door. I'll see that my son Dennis follows along behind me with the snow shovel. (Miraculously, I've managed to convince him that when he shovels snow, he's building those biceps that so impress the girls.) I'll give you a call in a few days to see if there's any other way I can help out. After all, what are neighbors for?
Rest up and you'll feel better before you know it!
