Al Roker missed his first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in 27 years as he recovers from a health scare.
The famous “Today” meteorologist recently shared that he was hospitalized after a blood clot in his leg traveled to his lungs.
“After a few medical setbacks, I am blessed to be receiving fantastic medical care and on the road to recovery,” Roker wrote on his verified Instagram account. “Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and I hope to see you soon.”
He kept Roker from his traditional co-host of the annual parade along with “Today” colleagues Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
NBC meteorologist Dylan Dreyer filled in for Roker at Thursday’s event and fielded a call from President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden, who asked how Roker was doing.
Dreyer told them his colleague is doing “better.”
