The news of your health really made me upset and worried. I wish I could see you right away.

My dear Mother,

 I hope you are feeling a little bit later today. I feel very sad whenever I have to come back from the hospital after seeing you. I do not feel like leaving you at all.

Today I heard from dad’s and the doctor’s conversation that you have recovered a lot. Your stomach pain has reduced to quite a lot. You will be released from the hospital very soon. But please keep listening to the doctor's advice and eat what he says. I will send your favourite book to the hospital so that you do not get bored. 

I have made a welcome back card for you too. Come back and get well soon. My prayers are always with you mom.

My dear Mother,

How are you now? I was very worried to hear about your health mom. You could have been a little more careful. Fortunately, the accident was mild.

My heart skipped a bit when I heard that you fell down from the stairs and hurt yourself quite bad. I have told you many times how worried I am for your health. However, the doctor has assured me that the pain will decrease within a few days. But you have to follow the strict diet and rules given by the doctor. Also, he has mentioned some exercises which will reduce your leg pain.

I hope with all these guidelines you will recover very quickly. Please take care of yourself and get well soon.

Yours affectionately,

I am certain that the sudden weather change caused you such high fever and cough and cold. You have to extend your stay at grandparent’s place till you recover completely. With grandma’s care you will get well soon. Please take the medicines on time and the prescribed diet. Also, do not go out in this cold weather. Take complete rest and you will be fine quickly.
