Al Roker misses Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade after health scares

For the first time in 27 years The Today Show anchor Al Roker didn’t attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and for good reason. Last week, the fan favorite revealed he had been experiencing health issues and been hospitalized due to blood clots. Roker has not tweeted since confirming the news last Friday, but said he is on the road to recovery. It is unclear how long Roker will be absent The Today Show broadcasts, but fans of his antics at the Macy’s Parade are already missing him and some are even saying the holiday was officially canceled this year because Al can’t attend. See what people are saying below!

“Last week I was hospitalized with a blood clot in my leg which caused some clots to go into my lungs,” Roker tweeted on Friday, Nov. 18. “After some medical whack-a-mole, I’m lucky enough to receive great medical care and be on the road to recovery. Thank you for all the well wishes/prayers. Have a great weekend.” Love and support for Roker quickly poured in after that, as the man has become a staple not only for many morning TV viewers, but for anyone eager to see him plop down with the Butterman at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
