Barbara Walters is recovering from chicken pox, more than a week after she fell and cut her temple during inauguration weekend.

"We want to give you an update on Barbara. You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood. Barbara has the chicken pox. She'd never had it as a child. So now she's been told to rest, she's not allowed any visitors. and we're telling you, Barbara, no scratching," Whoopi Goldberg said on "The View" today.

Walters was transferred to a New York hospital late last week and expects to be home very soon.

"We love you. We miss you. We just don't want to hug you," Goldberg said in a message to Walters.

The veteran ABC News journalist, who has interviewed every American president and first lady since Richard Nixon, fell on a stair at the British ambassador's residence over inauguration weekend, and out of an abundance of caution, was taken to the hospital to be examined by doctors.

In a statement last week, Walters said she wanted to "thank all the people who have called, written and been concerned about me."
