On this New Year's Eve, Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera treated his nearly 50,000 Twitter followers to a series of updates on his gnarled foot, the result of what he claims was a botched back surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

"Getting ready for surgery on foot ruined by [Hospital for Special Surgery]," Rivera tweeted Tuesday. A photo of his mangled big toe set atop a copy of the day's New York Times was included.

"Patient is is reasonably good spirits despite hair riot," Rivera then tweeted with a selfie inside Mount Sinai Hospital, also in New York.

"Survive surgery," read a followup tweet. This one also included one of Rivera's notorious selfies. But rather than standing almost nude in front of a mirror, he was seated in a chair, wearing a hospital gown (hopefully closed in the back).

"On the mend," said a third tweet, accompanied by a photo of a foot wearing a brace.

"Heading home!" read a final tweet. "Thanks Mt. Sinai Hospital. No thanks Hospital for Special Surgery for botched original job-Happy New Year." Included was a photo of Rivera on crutches...

Earlier in December, Rivera tweeted that he was suing the hospital that allegedly wrecked his foot.
