"The View" co-host Meghan McCain is returning to the show next week, after a month's absence due to the death of her father, Sen. John McCain.

"I will be getting back on the horse @TheView Monday October 8th," McCain, 33, tweeted Monday. "Thank you all for your patience & understanding ~ 'It's not about how hard you hit. It's about how hard can you get hit and keep moving forward,' " she wrote, thanking Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Benson of The Arizona Republic for the accompanying drawing of her as a boxer in a ring corner.

"The View" Twitter account posted, "Our @MeghanMcCain will return to @TheView next Monday, October 8th — and we can't wait to welcome her back to the table!," followed by a heart emoji. McCain has been absent from the ABC daytime panel-discussion show since the season 22 premiere on Sept. 4.
