Al Roker missed Macy’s Thanksgiving parade for the first time in 27 years as he recovers from a health scare.
A famous ‘today’ meteorologist recently shared that he was hospitalized After the blood clot in the leg has traveled to the lungs.
“I feel so lucky to be on the road to recovery with excellent medical care after the whack-a-mole medical procedure.” Roker wrote on his verified Instagram account. “Thank you for all the luck and prayers and hope to see you soon.”
This took Roker away from the traditional co-hosting of the annual parade alongside ‘Today’ colleagues Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
NBC meteorologist Dylan Dreyer represented Roker at Thursday’s event, answering a call from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden to ask how Roker was doing.
Dreyer told them her colleagues were doing “great things.”
