The past few weeks have been emotional for Al Roker’s wife Deborah Roberts. Her husband was rushed to the hospital because of blood clots, he returned home, and he was quickly rushed back to the hospital. There were moments where the outlook was grim for Al Roker. There were many places on the Internet were people just assumed he was already dead. These assumptions grew so heavy that “Al Roker dead” actually caught traction on Facebook and Twitter a few different times.
The hearts of The Today Show fans hung heavy for Deborah Roberts and her daughter as they could only imagine the emotional whirlwind they were going through not knowing whether they were going to have to say goodbye to Al.
While Al Roker was in the hospital, the family was hit with death. Al Roker was forced to say goodbye to someone he worked with for years. As TvShowsAce previously reported, Mark Traub, a longtime crew member of the NBC talk show, passed away. Al Roker was one of many who took to Instagram to mourn the unsettling passing of his former colleague.
Announcing that her husband was finally released from the hospital and returning home wasn’t the only thing Deborah Roberts shared on Instagram. She also took to her profile to tell everyone how humbled and thankful she was for all of the people who made the last few difficult weeks easier to handle.
