Deborah Roker, Al’s wife, says she is worried and exhausted by her husband’s health crisis.

The famous meteorologist was repeatedly ill from late November to January 6th, 2023, missing approximately thirty programs of Today.
After a near-fatal episode at year’s end due to blood clots in his lungs.
If you missed it the first time, Al Roker once expressed a health concern of his via Twitter.

With, “So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been,” he started off his message. “I had a blood clot in my leg last week, and it traveled to my lungs,” the patient said.

Following a round of medical whack-a-mole, I am extremely lucky to be receiving excellent care and making a full recovery. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and look forward to seeing you soon. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

“Many of you have innocently questioned where I am. This time last week, I was in the hospital with a blood clot that had traveled from my leg to my lungs.

I’ve been through some medical whack-a-mole, so it’s a relief to be in good hands and making progress in my recovery. Thank you for praying for us and for your concern; we look forward to seeing you soon. Have a wonderful, restful weekend, everyone!

After a near-fatal episode at year’s end due to blood clots in his lungs.

The TV star’s health has been a constant source of concern.

Two years ago, he came clean about being diagnosed with prostate cancer and revealing that he had surgery to remove the tumor. His hip and knee problems have required repeated operations.
Since the middle of the 1970s, when he first entered the broadcasting industry, Roker has garnered a great deal of praise for the quality of his newscasts.

Despite significant health problems, he recently finished the Brooklyn Half Marathon.

It was hoped that encouraging messages would arrive. Hoda Kotb was overjoyed and said

“Love you Al and praying every day for a speedy recovery!” Dylan Dryer said on Al’s Facebook page. And Melvin Craig ended his note with “Love you brother…” eagerly forward your return.

Even though he is returning to Today now that he is feeling better, his wife of 27 years can’t help but bring up the fact that they are still in shock.

Deborah, an anchor for ABC News, interviewed director Brooke Shields and actress Brooke Shields during the premiere of the documentary Pretty Baby.

In her own words: “I think a lot of people don’t realize – and I never realized – that being a caregiver is really taxing, exhausting, frightening, all of those things.”

The reporter said, “I never went through anything like this,” adding, “And I hope I’ll never do it again.”

She continued, “But it’s tough,” and described how challenging it had been to get past the gloomy period, even though Al was in much better form. “I’m still kind of, I think, recuperating,” she said. I’m still feeling a bit drained. I still feel psychologically drained.

She continued, “But you know what, I’m grateful, and just trying to just bask in the moment and just be happy that he’s well, and we’re all well.”

When Al returned to Today on January 6, the ABC celebrity was there to welcome him back.

Deborah acknowledges that her husband Al is “back to driving me crazy,” but she is comforted by the love and support of her family and friends and draws strength from her religious beliefs and spirituality to deal with Al’s health problem.

My loved ones and my coworkers helped me get through it. Many of my coworkers here today helped me when I felt like I couldn’t go on. The presence of people, accessible via phone, email, and text, was crucial.

We pray for the family’s healing and for a world in which they never again have to experience what they have.

If you and your loved ones are fans of Al, please SHARE this post with them.
