Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer has been absent from Fox News over the past weeks due to ongoing complications from Surgery.
On Thursday Anchor Bret Baier updated his condition.

Here is what Baier said:
“Before we leave, one quick update,” Baier said. “Hundreds of you, literally hundreds have emailed, tweeted, or posted questions to me about the status of our colleague, Charles Krauthammer.”
“Charles had a pre-planned surgery his doctors said he needed,” he continued. “He expected a speedy recovery but ran into some complications post-surgery.”
“He is still in the hospital,” Baier added, “making slow steady progress and recovery.”
“He desperately wants to come back to the panel as soon as possible,” he continued. “Believe me, I speak to or email with his wife Robby almost every day. And I share your thoughts and prayers.”
“It will likely be a few more weeks,” he said. “And yes, he does get to watch his Washington Nationals first game of the playoffs against the Cubs, tomorrow night, so we’re pulling for him.”
“And thanks for asking about his status,” Baier concluded. “He’ll be back here soon I’m sure.”
Though not all conservatives are fans of Krauthammer, many responded on Twitter with well wishes.
