  • They say laughter is the best medicine. So, technically, if you laugh at my jokes, you don’t need to take your meds. (Just kidding, please take your meds.)

  • I told your doctor you could use some cheering up, and they prescribed a hearty dose of me. Don't worry, there are no known side effects to our friendship.

  • Sending 'get well' vibes your way, because my 'fix everything' wand is apparently out of magic.

  • Get well soon! The houseplants miss being watered by someone who knows what they’re doing.

  • Heard your nurse is gorgeous. Get well slowly, buddy!

  • You’re just doing this for the hospital food, aren’t you? Get well soon!

  • I’m convinced you weren't really sick, just temporarily abducted by aliens because you’re too awesome. Welcome back to Earth, we’ve missed you!

  • I heard you’ve been practicing your 'sick voice' to get out of work. Kudos for the dedication, but maybe save that talent for a side hustle!

  • If recovering was a competitive sport, you’d be leading the league. Get well soon, champ!

  • Your detailed descriptions of your symptoms have been fascinating! But maybe let's save some mysteries to solve together when you're better.

  • Get well soon! Remember, laughter is the best medicine. Or was it wine? Probably both.

  • Get ready to be treated like a homecoming queen/king when you’re back on your feet. Your throne awaits (and by throne, I mean your favorite chair at home).

  • On the bright side, you’ve discovered a job where sick days are unlimited, and you’re your own boss. Get well soon, so you can resign!
