Deborah Roberts Says Husband Al Roker Is Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired
For the past several months now, famous weatherman Al Roker has been in and out of the hospital. The 68-year-old ‘Today‘ anchor has had multiple knee surgeries, and suffered from dangerous blood clots in his legs and lungs.
Just recently, he underwent a total knee replacement, and according to his wife Deborah Roberts, Al is sick and tired of being sick and tired.
More than anything else — with his body fatigue — he just had a moment where he is sick and tired of being sick and tired. Of course I was a little nervous because everything is so precious right now… we’ve been through so much, but I’m really happy that he’s on the mend and he’s doing well.
Roker was able to return to the ‘Today‘ show this week following his surgery, but he still has to take it slow. There still might be some days where he needs to take off work.
Roberts talked about how people will stop her on the street and say that they’re praying for her husband, and while she appreciates it, sometimes it just serves as an unwanted reminder.
One of the downfalls of fame and being on television is that everyone is in your business… it’s a little tough. There are times I’m going for a jog and I am coming back and I’m having a moment to myself and someone will ask about Al, and I am like, ‘OK you took me back there.’ So yeah it comes with the territory.
Hopefully Al stays on recovery road. No more setbacks! It’s straight ahead now!
