Mark Kriski Back On the Air, At Least For the Day

It had been nearly two months (to our best recollection) but Mark Kriski was back on the air today–calling in to KTLA’s morning news show from his hospital bed. Kriski has been sidelined in the hospital with a brutal case of viral pneumonia since just after Thanksgiving.

So how’s he doing?

“Still a little bit weak. You lie in a hospital bed for a few weeks and that will knock you out. But I’m feeling much better.”

Indeed, Kriski seemed to be in good spirits, asking the morning news crew if they “wanna talk about gross bodily fluids?” Everyone answered with a robust “no,” but Kriski went on to reveal that doctors had drained up to “a quart of fluid from his body,” per day since he’s been hospitalized.

Kriski has been suffering from “all kinds of infections…in the stomach area and other organs.”

But, he added, “It’s just a matter of time. Getting the right antibiotics. I’ll be back before we know it.”

Great news.
