How to I convey "get-well soon-wishes" to a mother for her child.

Is there a more idiomatic expression than "I wish your son to get well soon"?

I am looking for an expression that can be used in emails and is professional but not too formal.

  • "I hope you son gets well soon." or "I hope you son will soon be feeling better." – Hugh Aug 29 '16 at 13:44

  • I don't like "I hope ..." because it might imply "...because then you can concentrate on our work again" in certain contexts. – TheEspinosa Aug 29 '16 at 13:48

    Another way to say it "Sorry to hear about your son. I hope he soon feels better." – Hugh Aug 29 '16 at 13:56

    You may use: I wish your son a speedy recovery. – alwayslearning Aug 29 '16 at 18:58
