“To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other. A hand is clenching, an eye isn’t working and my hearing is quite impaired… but overall , I feel so damn lucky to be here – and it’s the people who brought me here who are amazing!” Hall tweeted Thursday evening, sharing an image of himself from the hospital.

Hall also honored veteran Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshinova. Both were killed in the attack.

“I have to give credit to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who didn’t come that day. Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was contagious. RIP,” Hall wrote, sharing a photo of Pierre as well as a video of a tribute to Sasha on the air.

Zakrzewski, a Fox News legend who covered nearly every international story in a historic tenure, was just 55. Last year, he played a key role in the expulsion of Afghan independent associates and their families after the US withdrawal. In December, Zakrzewski received the “Unsung Hero” award at the FOX News Media Spotlight Awards.

A funeral service for Zakrzewski was held last week in Ireland.
