Hello sisters and brothers. I’ve been convalescing at home after being ill since July. Doctors say I'm getting better. Yippee! #TutuYippee— DesmondTutu Official (@TheDesmondTutu) September 23, 2015
Tutu thanked everyone for their support and well wishes.
Mostly, a huge thank you to all whose prayers, gifts and kind words comforted and strengthened me over a difficult time. #TutuThanksYou— DesmondTutu Official (@TheDesmondTutu) September 23, 2015
Tutu has been hospitalised on several occasions since July this year, for treatment unrelated to his long battle with prostate cancer.
