    Greetings,

    Please, how do you say “on the mend”?

    This is the best way to say that you are still ill, but you are definitely in the process of getting better; of course, you are not yet completely well.

    Is it
    رو به بهبود شده ام
    or perhaps
    رو به بهبودی شده ام

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    رو به بهبودي هستم

    Synonyms:
    ا﴿الحمدالله﴾ ﴿روز به روز﴾ دارم بهتر مي‌شم
    رو به بهبوديم
    خيلي بهترم

    Would (or could) you also use رو بہ صحت/صحت یابی ?

    Many thanks, all clear now.

    Ah, just one thing - please may I check the pronunciation of بهبوديم in the sentence رو به بهبوديم?

    (Whoops, sorry Alfaaz, I think we must have posted simultaneously.)

    رو به صحّت هستم is correct, but is not common at the present. At the present صحّت normally is used in the form of صحّت و سلامت and to showing a complete health. For example:

    بيماري من خوب شد و اكنون در صحّت و سلام كامل به سر مي‌برم
    اميدوارم هميشه صحيح و سالم باشيد
    اميدوارم هميشه در صحّت و سلامت كامل باشيد

    اميدوارم هميشه در صحّت و سلامت كامل به سر بريد

    Roo be Behboodiyam

    رو به بهبودي هستم = رو به بهبوديم
