The host added that “there will probably be similar days in the future when I need a day for rest or any medical issues. But the fact that I can come back here and be with you is a real blessing, and i appreciate it and i appreciate your understanding during all this.
“As we said, everything is from day to day, and especially in the circumstances I find myself in.”
