Deborah Roberts, Al Roker’s wife, isn’t in a good mood, even though Al made his long-awaited return to the Today program the week before after a grueling battle with his health. This has made him feel better.

Only a few days after her husband’s triumphant return to television, the ABC journalist took to Instagram to express her sadness and disappointment at having to put away her holiday decorations. She remarked that her “Christmas happiness” is now a thing of the past.

Deborah posted three photos on her website, one showing her and Al giggling in front of their Christmas tree. The second image was a close-up of the tree, illuminating its numerous lights in vivid detail.

The tree in the third image had previously occupied an empty area in the corner of their living room. “I guess that’s all there is to it.” “Christmas happiness from 2022 in the rear-view mirror mixed with so much more,” she captioned the photos.

“However, I never fail to sense a stab of melancholy whenever I remove the shine. Is there anyone else?” Deborah went on to say.

Following her appearance on Friday’s Today’s broadcast with Al, where she highlighted his “life-threatening” illness and revealed that he had undergone a seven-hour operation and lost half of his blood due to internal bleeding, the TV personality has now commented about the event online.

Al’s issues began with “a few stomach cramps” before increasing to the point where he developed blood clots in his lungs. The blood clots in his lungs are suspected of having been caused by his contracting COVID-19 in September.

In addition, he had internal bleeding, which necessitated surgery to expose two bleeding ulcers. “I’ve lost about half of my blood. They were trying to figure out where it was,” he said of his doctors at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell.

In addition to resecting Al’s colon and removing his gallbladder, the surgeons also operated on his duodenum, a section of the small intestine. As a result, the treatment took a total of seven hours.

“I went in for one procedure, and I got four,” Al joked about the circumstance.
