GET WELL SOON

Jay was released from hospital on Tuesday after suffering serious burns to his face, hands and chest.

The TV star suffered second-degree burns after a vintage car he was working under in his Los Angeles garage erupted into flames on November 12.

Jay spent 10 days at the Grossman Burn Center and received two skin graft surgeries.

In a statement, he said: “I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet.”


While Al has asked for prayers for Jay, the broadcaster himself is battling serious health issues.

He was rushed to the hospital for blood clots after being absent from the Today show for nearly two weeks.

He revealed last week that he was treated for blood clots in his leg and lungs.

Al shared a photo of a flower bouquet and a coffee mug, captioned: “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 closed.

Fans and friends flooded the comments section with their prayers and good wishes as they urged Al to make a speedy recovery.

Today co-star Savannah Guthrie commented: “You’re the strongest person we know. We miss you and will see you soon!!”
