MANILA – Fans of TV show host Boy Abunda may be disappointed to learn that his return to television will not be anytime soon, according to colleague and good friend Kris Aquino.

On an episode of “The Buzz”, Aquino – who is one of the show’s hosts – disclosed that Abunda is scheduled this week for a follow-up check up at the hospital; after which he is off to a private place to get some much needed rest.

“Tomorrow he has another check-up to see how the procedure went; 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.

“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 added.

According to a statement from Abunda’s doctor, the TV host’s physical condition has greatly improved, and that he is slowly regaining his strength and appetite.  Abunda was diagnosed with a liver abscess, a condition which required aspiration of the abnormality two weeks ago.

Additionally, there will be no further need for invasive procedures if Abunda continues to show signs of improvement, the doctor said.
