Whoopi Goldberg Reveals She Was Hospitalized Again Last Week

Whoopi Goldberg said on Monday's edition of The View that's she's recovering well after a recent health issue led to her hospitalization last week.

'I am here, I'm much better - I'm much, much better,' Goldberg, 63, told the audience for the ABC talk show. 'I had a 24-hour bug, which landed me back in the hospital last week, which is why I missed y'all on Thursday.'

The EGOT winner said her illness 'came and went' and she seems 'to be doing well' in getting to work.
Whoopi's recent illness came after she missed more than a month of tapings as she battled pneumonia and sepsis with a hospital stint.

In a clip she taped for The View, Goldberg explained the severity of her health battle.

I am here, I am up and moving around, not as fast as I'd like to be, but I am OK,' Goldberg said in March. 'So here is what happened: I had pneumonia, and I was septic. Pneumonia in both lungs, which mean there was fluid, there was all kinds of stuff going on. And yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn't.'

She thanked fans for their well wishes and kind words amid her trying time.

'All of the wonderful things that people have been saying, even people who have not been huge fans of mine have actually said nice things about me,' Goldberg said. 'We all know that's gonna change when I get back, but for right now it's brilliant and thank you for everything.'
