Where in the world is Al Roker? On Friday, November 18, the TV star, 68, shared what he's been going through as of late.

"So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been. Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs. After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone," he captioned a photo of some flowers via Instagram.

This is hardly the first time Roker has been open about his health woes. In November 2020, he shared his prostate cancer diagnosis with viewers.

“The good news is we caught it early, not great news is that it’s a little aggressive so I’m going to be taking some time off to take care of this,” he said at the time.

"I don’t want people thinking, ‘Oh, poor Al,’ you know, because I’m gonna be OK," he added. "You know what? If that’s what it takes to get 2020 out, then let’s just get it outta the way. Boom! Let’s just finish it off. I’m ready. How about you?"
