Whoopi Goldberg returns to 'The View' after near-death illness

Still-Recovering Whoopi Goldberg Makes Surprise Visit On ‘The View’, Thanks TMZ For Not Tracking Her Down

"This is my first foray out", Goldberg said after making her unexpected stroll onstage just as a surprised co-host Joy Behar was telling the audience that the ailing Goldberg was still off sick. "I'm not there yet, I know that". And along with a big thank you for all the love and support she received, the 63-year-old Oscar victor came with a message about health insurance.

"I still have a cough and that's the last thing to go, apparently", she said. "Over the next week and a half I will start to be here more often". "The advocate "said 'I really don't know.' I was like, 'well, this can't be the first time somebody has come in with this".

Last week, Goldberg broke her silence about why she's been gone for so long in a video message to fans. "There's death, and here's me", she said. Sepsis is the leading cause of death in hospitals, with at least 250,000 Americans dying ever year from it in the United States alone (that's more than breast cancer, AIDS and strokes combined). "So this is my beginning", she said.

Then she got serious. You think that because you've healed quick before that something insane can't happen, well, it can. "You need to think of it". "This is us", Goldberg said. "You must really take care of yourself, because there is little tiny stuff out there that will kill you that you never think of".

Whoopi Goldberg makes a surprise visit to the set of ABC's, "The View", on March 14, 2019.

"You can never leave me again, ever!" "We missed you so much!" So Goldberg asked if she could lease it. "That was like, uh, no, actually I hadn't thought of it. Prognosis is I'm not supposed to be here but I got permission". I saw her last night and she's very amusing still, and we had big laughs.

Goldberg shared a video update from her home on Friday, Feb. 8. after over a month of taking leave from the show.

"Hey, yes, it's me", she began. "I am OK. I'm not dead".

"Yes, I came very close to leaving the earth".

"Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things people have bee saying".

"Ladies, I can not wait to see y'all", she added, addressing her fellow panelists. "Sixty years of insurance money and you're telling me I can't get this machine".

Goldberg has co-hosted The View since 2007. As for now, "my immune system is challenged", she said. "She's getting there, she's on the mend".

Goldberg humorously said that people actually believed Behar's joke that she was pregnant and that was why she took a break from the show.

The talk show host suggested that this would be a good issue for some of the young politicians who have entered the fray recently to sink their teeth into - because this is an issue that voters can change.

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on ABC.
