On Thursday morning's Today show, Roker, 68, also sent a message of thanks as he remained in the hospital.
The longtime TV personality has been absent from the NBC morning news program for several weeks, last appearing on the Nov. 4 broadcast. He was first hospitalized for blood clots in his leg and lungs, released weeks later and then returned to the facility after Thanksgiving.
"We all wish that Al could have been with us but due to some complications, he is back in the hospital and he's in very good care," Today co-anchor Hoda Kotb said Thursday, while reflecting on the holiday lighting. "He's resting and his doctors are keeping a close eye on him."
"Al and his family want everybody to know how grateful they are for all the love, the support and the well wishes," she went on to say, noting that she and Craig Melvin FaceTimed Roker from the tree lighting. "He gave us a big thumbs up. So good to see ya, [Al]!"
"Love you, Al," added Sheinelle Jones, while Melvin told Roker, "We'll see you back here soon, my friend."
PEOPLE confirmed on Wednesday that Roker was went back to the hospital by ambulance, just one day after he was discharged.
"Al was rushed to the hospital after Thanksgiving," a source told PEOPLE, explaining that the emergency transport came when his wife, Deborah Roberts, was "locked out of her car and couldn't get inside it."
"The car malfunctioned," the insider said. "She couldn't get her phone or any of her belongings."
