MANILA – TV host Boy Abunda is now out of the hospital after being confined for several days due to a liver abscess.

Speaking on “The Buzz” on Sunday, host Kris Aquino said Abunda is now resting at home but will not returning to work anytime soon.

“The King of Talk is already home pero nagpapalakas pa. Kanina ka-text ko si Bong Quintana. Bong mentioned na Boy will be spending several nights or maybe a week in their Tagaytay rest house siguro for the fresh air,” Aquino said, referring to Abunda's long-time partner.

The host-actress added that Abunda won't be joining her on their talk show "Aquino and Abunda Tonight," as well as on “The Buzz” next week.

“Bigyan pa natin siya ng panahon para talagang bumalik ang kanyang kalusugan. Pero baka hindi pa [natin siya kasama next week]. Let’s not rush him. Kailangan na talagang 100% na-restore ang good health niya,” she said.

Aquino confirmed two weeks ago that Abunda was rushed to hospital last August 9 when his temperature reached 41 degrees Celsius.

Last week, his doctor said in a statement that Abunda recently underwent an aspiration for his liver abscess.

Abunda’s doctor also said the TV host’s condition has tremendously improved, adding that his appetite is slowly coming back.
