Charles Krauthammer says he is still recovering from surgery

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer on Friday had a special Christmas message for his Fox News fans, after taking a break from the public eye to recover from surgery.

“This being my first ‘vacation’ from Fox since I began there years ago, I should be enjoying the layoff, except for the fact that I have to work hard my doctors compare it to marathon training to offset the debilitating effects of the surgery,” Krauthammer said in a statement read on-air by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier.

“I watch the show just about every night and it is consistently splendid: the best newscast on television,” Krauthammer said, referring to the program on which he has been a regular panelist.

“I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’ll be back as soon as I can!” he added.

Neither Krauthammer nor Fox News have disclosed details about his health; Baier said in October only that Krauthammer had undergone pre-planned surgery recommended by his doctors and “ran into some complications” after the operation.

Krauthammer, 67, has been paralyzed from the waist down after he was injured in a diving accident while in his first year at Harvard Medical School.
