Barbara Walters on road to recovery after Inauguration fall

By Lauren Weitz,

After a fall at an inauguration party landed her in the hospital Saturday, Barbara Walters is on her way to recovery and is expected to return home soon.

The View co-host tripped on a stair at the British ambassador's home in Washington Saturday evening, where she was then taken to the hospital for examination.

"Barbara went to Washington to cover the inauguration," said The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday’s show, according to the Los Angeles Times. "She missed a step and had a fall, which cut her upper temple. The doctors stitched her up, and she is doing fine, but they want her to take it easy."

Walters, 83, thanked everyone who was concerned about her condition in a statement released Tuesday, according to ABC News.

“I am running a low grade fever and the doctors are keeping me in the hospital until my temperature is normal,” said Walters in the statement. “I'm pleased to say that it is going in the right direction and I will be home soon.”
