Syndicated columnist and "Special Report" All-Star Panel favorite Dr. Charles Krauthammer gave viewers an update on his medical recovery.

Krauthammer has been absent from the Washington bureau since Summer 2017, after suffering complications from a medical procedure.

"Things are progressing steadily - slower than I would like - but steadily," Krauthammer said in a letter to viewers read by Bret Baier.

"I wish I could give you and myself a better idea of when this marathon ends," he said.

Krauthammer said his recovery has been intense and slow, but was upbeat about returning to his seat on the panel.

"I'm determined to make it back," Krauthammer said. "I've got to. I can't let you guys have all the fun."

Baier echoed the sentiments of both himself and innumerable viewers who miss the 67-year-old's keen insight, wit and positive personality.
