Today star Savannah Guthrie recovers from surgery for ‘massive tear’ in retina and takes break from show – The Sun

TODAY Show host Savannah Guthrie took to social media to announce she secretly underwent eye surgery to reattach her retina and repair a "massive" tear.

The mother of two shared a picture of her "out of office" note, written by her 5-year-old daughter, Vale, along with a caption that explained her procedure.

This is my “out of office” message. Turns out I had to have surgery today because I had a massive tear in my retina and retina detachment. I am home resting for a while. Very grateful to my doctors, prayers of good friends and my husband @feldmike who has swooped in like a superhero.

She said: "This is my “out of office” message. Turns out I had to have surgery today because I had a massive tear in my retina and retina detachment.

"I am home resting for a while. Very grateful to my doctors, prayers of good friends and my husband Michael Feldman who has swooped in like a superhero."

The sweet note read: "Nobody can come in to my mommy's room."

 


Fellow Today Show host Carson Daly chimed in and wished her well.

Carson wrote: "Hope you're ok!"

Watch What Happens Live host and friend Andy Cohen also commented.

He said: "Get better soon! And don’t try to read these comments it’ll hurt your eyes!"


Today host Hoda Kotb talked about her close pal's surgery during Thursday's show.

She said: "We are also sending our well-wishes to our girl Savannah. She is on the mend thankfully after eye surgery."

She also hinted at Savannah being out of office: "When you have that kind of surgery, you kind of have to be immobile.

"So that’s how she’s going to be for the next little bit."

Savannah first talked about her injury on air in late November after missing work one day.

She called in and said her 3-year-old son, Charles Max, accidentally threw a toy train at her eye, and it had detached her retina.

She said: "He doesn’t even know what he did. I wouldn’t want to make him feel bad for it.

"He hears me talking about it and he has no idea. I was FaceTiming with my mom to tell her and he came running in and said, ‘I did it!’ "

She even powered through hosting the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in New York City while having daily laser eye surgery.
