The Today show weatherman is in his phase of recovery. AI Roker in early November revealed that he was treated for blood clots in his legs and lungs. AI Rokers due to his health issues had to miss the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting. But the Today star shredded with happy tears when his fellow NBC co-anchors gave him a heartfelt surprise. His fellow co-anchors brought the holiday spirit right to his doorstep.
On December 12, Hoda Kotb, Jenna Bush Hager, Savannah Guthrie, Craig Melvin, and all the Today show cast arrived at his New York City home wearing Santa caps and harmonizing him with Christmas carols. AI Roker was overwhelmed by their gesture and could not stop himself from shedding happy tears.
He then expressed his feelings for his fellow companion and said- “I’ve missed you all so, so very much, all these faces,” “It just means the world to me and to our family. And my Deborah, who’s just been my rock. Thank you so much. I really appreciated it. I love you more than you’ll ever know.”
AI Roker later shared the video of his sweet surprise on his Instagram account captioning- “I am still blown away by the love my family at @todayshow showed us this week,” The post was showered with love and support by his Today fans with multiple supportive messages in the comment section.
AI for now is doing physical and occupational therapy to get his strength back. However, he earlier revealed that his recovery has been ” a tough slog” but he is not going to give up easily. AI before his holiday surprise said on the show-
“This has been the hardest one yet — and you know, I’ve had my fair share of surgeries,” “But I feel good, I feel strong. And every day, I feel a little bit better. It gives you a profound sense of gratitude for this outpouring of prayers and thanks. I’m a very fortunate person.”
AI thus in his recovery mode may take a long time to appear on the show at the news desk. Fans are praying for his good health and thus sending get well soon messages to their favorite meteorologist.
