"I'm doing much better; it's been a long haul for me," Remy told SportsCenter 5's Mike Lynch in an exclusive interview at Fenway Park Wednesday.
"You battle through and you get through it and it's nice to get back to the park where I'm supposed to be," Remy said, after he had stopped in for a meeting with manager Terry Francona.
The iconic Sox broadcaster said he has been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from Red Sox Nation. "It's been impossible for me to personally thank them all. The number of cards and kindergarten kids making posters has been overwhelming. It means that for the last 22 years I have been doing something right," he said.
Remy would not put a date on his return. "I hope to get back soon. I think it's coming soon," adding that he had missed several earlier deadlines for his return.
