After taking time off to help deal with her father’s health issues, Charlotte tweeted she will be returning to action tonight at Baton Rouge, Louisiana at a house show.

Charlotte stepped away from the action a few weeks ago when Ric Flair was brought to the hospital with abdominal pain and was put into a medically induced coma in preparation for surgery that appears to have been to remove part of his bowel and other medical issues, including his kidney’s failing. She flew to Atlanta to be by his side and stayed with him until he was brought out of the coma and was cutting promos on the nursing staff.
Her returning to the road, and as she tweeted, to Smackdown Live, is a good sign that Ric is recovering at a good rate at this point. While nothing specific has been said, it is reported his kidneys still haven’t recovered and there are also reports that Ric had an external heart pacemaker hooked up, possibly to set up an internal pacemaker when he has recovered more from his medical emergency.
