In the video, Fox did not say why he was hospitalized, but praised his sister Deidra Dixon, his daughter and “many great medical personnel” for “saving[his]life.”
“I went through things I thought I’d never go through,” Fox said in the video. “I know a lot of people have been waiting to hear what’s going on, but to be honest, they didn’t want to see me with a broken tube wondering if I could survive.”
Fox also spent time debunking rumors that had spread about his condition.
“Sometimes things get out of hand when you keep quiet…. Some people say I’m blind, but you see, my eyes are working fine. Paralysis, no paralysis, but I’ve been through hell and back,” Fox said, adding, “There were pitfalls on the road to recovery.”
