MANILA – Host Boy Abunda will not be back on television anytime soon, according to his good friend Kris Aquino.

Speaking on “The Buzz” where she is one of the hosts, Aquino said Abunda will be going back to the hospital this week to have a follow up check-up. After that, Aquino said the TV host will be going somewhere private to rest.

“Tomorrow he has another check-up to see how the procedure, how he’s healing. On Tuesday, upon the advice of a very good friend na itatago natin sa pangalang Kris Aquino, aalis siya para magbakasyon somewhere where there’s privacy, there’s a lot of sun, there is sand, there is beautiful water. Sabi niya huwag ko daw sabihin [kung saan], but it’s private,” she said.

Aquino said Abunda lost a lot of weight and has to fully recuperate before he could go back to work.

“He’ll be gone for huwag ko din daw sabihin kung ilang days. He lost more than 20 pounds. Kailangan talaga magpalakas, ibalik ang sustansya sa katawan. Sinabi din niya na huwag ko sabihin 'yung date kung kailan siya babalik. Let it be fluid,” she said.

Two weeks ago, Abunda’s doctor said he underwent an aspiration of the liver abscess.

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

According to the statement, Abunda will no longer need any further invasive procedures if his condition further improves.
