Al Roker leaves the hospital after being treated for a blood clot in his leg

Al Roker has a lot to thank for being discharged from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day…though he sadly had to miss his first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in 27 years.

The 68-year-old Today Show weather host announced last week that he was rushed to hospital “with a blood clot in my leg that sent some clots to my lungs”.

He took to Instagram on Thursday and poked fun at his absence from the annual parade as he left the hospital to eat Thanksgiving dinner with his family.

He shared a video Thursday morning of himself walking through the hospital dressed in a black baseball cap, blue face mask, green and gray polo shirt from his alma mater – SUNY Oswego – blue pants and black shoes.

“Alright, this is my version of the Thanksgiving Day parade getting ready to leave the hospital. Time to blast that taco stand,” Roker said in the short video.

So much to be #thankful for on #Thanksgiving. Leaving the hospital and home for #ThanksgivingDinner,” he said in the caption.
