She even dubbed him a “living, breathing miracle.” The Good Morning America reporter also revealed that her husband’s condition was a medical mystery and it took a medical team to figure out what was really happening. She further added, “It was the most tumultuous, frightening journey we have ever been on. I mean there was just so much that had to be done and a surgery, if you don’t mind me saying a major, major surgery. And we were just on pins and needles, every day.”

He wrote, “Can’t thank @debrobertsabc enough for getting me through this medical crisis. And now that she’s here at @todayshow maybe she might stay? Just kidding!!”
