  2. I am sorry you are not feeling well. If you don't get better soon, I might have to yell.
  3. Sometimes getting sick means you get really tired and weak. I am hoping that you get stronger soon.
  4. I am praying that you will be healed, and in the meantime that you are given the encouragement and comfort you need.
  5. I don't think I would like it if you got well soon. I want you to get well now!

  1. I like visiting my friends, but I don't like when I'm visiting them in the hospital. Get well soon, so I can visit you at home!
  2. If you hear an annoying beeping noise in the hospital, that's a good sign. That means your heart is still beating.
  3. Hospitals are not the most fun places to be, but thank goodness you are where you need to be. You're in my prayers. I'm looking forward to you getting back on your feet.
  4. Being in the hospital is no fun. Hurry up and get better, so you can get home. That's where you can really recover.
  5. Look on the bright side: since you're in the hospital, I know you don't have any other plans. That means I can come hang out with you whenever I want.
