"I'm the only person who can go into the hospital for thee weeks and put weight on", she joked, before getting more serious in tone.

"This is my first foray out..." "I'm not there yet, I know that".

The 63-year-old spoke about how she still has a cough and about her three-week stint in the hospital. "So this is my beginning".

"The scariest moment was hearing my doctor say to me, 'You do realize how close to death you were?'" she went on. "I'm not there yet, I'm not better...but over the next week and a half I will be here more often".

Last week, Goldberg broke her silence about why she's been gone for so long in a video message to fans. We wish her a speedy recovery and it's so good to see her doing better!

In the video, she revealed that she had been battling pneumonia and that it had spread to both lungs and caused sepsis. "They had to pump a lot of stuff out of me". You think that because you've healed quick before that something insane can't happen, well, it can.

Tell us what you think! "There's death, and here's me", said Goldberg on Thursday.

The host said the experience was a "cautionary tale for all of us". "You must really take care of yourself", Goldberg warned viewers.

Whoopi Goldberg makes a surprise visit to the set of ABC's, "The View", on March 14, 2019.

"You can never leave me again, ever!" "You can not leave this show".

"We missed you so much!" exclaimed co-host Meghan McCain.

And Goldberg was happy to be there, if only to clear up some misconceptions about her absence. "I thought it was so amusing". "I am here. I am up and moving around - not as fast as I'd like to be, but I am okay". I'm not dead. So, here's what happened. "There was all kinds of stuff going on and, yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth". "Good news: I didn't". And the people who are saying "no" to you in insurance are not doctors. "Even people who aren't huge fans of mine have actually been saying nice things about me". "Why is it I've been paying insurance for nearly 60 years and it hasn't rolled over? To everybody, see you soon".
