“So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been,” Roker writes. “Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs. After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery.”

Roker ended by noting, “Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone.”
