After weeks of intense anticipation, the fans of Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer is reported to be on the mend.
Fox News’ Bret Baier delivered the good news, saying that Krauthammer is finally “back on track” after multiple surgeries and a treacherous health journey that began in the summer of 2017. It was then that the Washington Post columnist took time off to undergo a medical procedure, that reportedly had some complications.
Over the last year, Krauthammer has had to endure several more surgeries. However, Baier was happy to report that fellow his fellow journalist hoped to soon be out of the hospital and back on track to living a healthy life again:
“Finally, tonight, an update many of you have been waiting for,” Baier teased. “Panel regular… Charles Krauthammer sent me a very nice email this afternoon, and he said I could share some of the good news about his recovery from multiple surgeries.”
“The worst now appears to be behind me, and I’m finally getting back on track with the rehab schedule that will eventually get me home,” Krauthammer told Baier in the email.
“The whole staff here at ‘Special Report’ is behind you, Charles. We’re hoping and praying for no more setbacks and a speedy recovery.”

The Washington Examiner reports that this is a followup to a statement that Baier read for viewers in February about the health of the much-loved panelist.
“Things are progressing steadily slower than I would like, but steadily,” Krauthammer said in a statement shared by Baier on Feb. 20. “Still I wish I could give you — and myself — a better idea of when this marathon ends. I am sure it is strange for your viewers that a regular panelist should disappear for months without warning and without any real explanation.”
“After my surgery, there were serious complications that took several months to stabilize,” the note continued. “My improvement has finally allowed me to concentrate on intensive rehabilitation to recover my strength and stamina. This too is progressing well but as usual is intense and slow. Nonetheless, I am determined to make it back. I’ve got to — I can’t let you guys have all the fun.”
