Meghan McCain returning to ‘The View’ over 1 month after father John’s death

Meghan McCain is getting back to work, over one month after she was forced to mourn the death of her beloved father, John McCain.

This Monday, the republican beauty took to Twitter to announce her return to The View following a weeks-long hiatus. “I will be getting back on the horse @TheView Monday October 8th. Thank you all for your patience & understanding,” she wrote incuding a funny fan drawing of herself as well as an inspirational quote by Steve Benson.

“It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard can you get hit and keep moving forward.” (Thank you to Steve Benson & @azcentral for the pic),” added Meghan.

Meghan’s BFF, Abby Huntsman announced her temporary departure from the talk show this September.

WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 31: Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, touches the casket during the ceremony honoring the late US Senator inside the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol, August 31, 2018 in Washington, DC. A Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton, Farone said McCain did what was right. 'He never took the easy way out, he knew actions speak louder than words and he never tweeted about it. He just got it done,' she said. The late senator died August 25 at the age of 81 after a long battle with brain cancer. He will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday, a rare honor bestowed on only 31 people in the past 166 years. Sen. McCain will be buried at his final resting place at the U.S. Naval Academy on Sunday. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

“Meghan is like a sister to me and this was the hardest thing she has ever been through,” said Huntsman at the time. “Her dad was her best friend, her dad was everything. I was so proud of her—it was like her dad had passed the torch to her. She was now speaking for the family.”

She also honored her friend’s late father, calling him a hero who was “willing to give his life for this country.”

Meghan, 33, broke down in tears various times in the days following the death of her father, 81.

U.S. Senator died one day after he discontinued treatment for his worsening brain cancer, but was honored in services all over the country.

He was put to rest at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis after his family held a beautiful and intimate ceremony celebrating his life.

To everyone who has sent me and my family such kind words of strength and prayers, thank you from the bottom of my heart, it really has been helping me. We start my fathers last (first round) of radiation and chemotherapy today. This last month has easily been the most challenging and difficult of my life. I come from a long lineage of warriors and I have never been more grateful for the strength and fortitude that has been passed down to me, I am relying on it now more than ever. My natural inclination is always to be open and share my life but at the moment I am still in a place where I just want and need to be around my family and am asking for your understanding and patience. To those of you out there living with #GBM or who have a family member or loved one living with #GBM, you are my absolute heroes. We are in this fight together, sending you all love and light. #FUCKCANCER
Happy Fathers Day to my father @senjohnmccain. This picture is how I always think of you, relaxed, in Arizona, grilling us ribs and listening to Frank Sinatra. Thank you for teaching me how to love life and seize every moment. Thank you for exposing me to the world (it's good and bad) and teaching me about character, conviction and having true grit. Finally thank you for always giving me something to believe in, in a world where it has become increasingly harder to find. I love you with all my heart. 🇺🇸❤️
