Al Roker is back in the hospital as a result of complications related to blood clots in his lungs.
The Today host is greatly missed by both his audience and his coworkers, and he was able to soak up all of the wonderful energy on Monday.
As a result, Al, who has been keeping a low profile while recovering, took to Instagram to re-share a video that his NBC colleagues had created for him.
The video was posted to Al’s Instagram Story, giving the impression that the celebrity not only saw it but also appreciated it.
Tevin Wooten, an NBC News correspondent, was the one who first uploaded the touching video with the accompanying statement: “The whole weather division at NBC and Telemundo is thinking about our friend, Al Roker.”
On Monday, Al’s co-hosts on Today were also thinking of him, and they made sure to include him in the Christmas video card that they made.
Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Dylan Dreyer, Sheinelle Jones, Craig Melvin, and Jenna Bush Hager were among those who appeared in the Love Actually-inspired video.
Because the group didn’t want anyone to feel left out, they decided to include Al, the well-known meteorologist, by handing everyone cutouts of his face to hold.
After spending the weekend with her husband, Al’s wife Deborah Roberts seemed to give him a positive report on their vacation.
On Instagram Stories, she shared a photo of a coffee cup with the comment “Faith and appreciation.” After some time had passed, the journalist shared a picture of the final score of the game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the LSU Tigers on their social media account. “A good day all around!” she closed her message, hinting that there had been some good news for Al as well.
Deborah had also posted a reflective note on her Facebook page the week before, with a photo of the changing colors in New York, where the family lives, and the phrase “So grateful for the love.”
She didn’t say anything about Al or how he was feeling, but earlier that day she had tweeted an image of a TV that appeared to be in a hospital ward and was showing the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. She seemed to be present.
