On Wednesday’s (12/11/19) episode of “Today”, Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin announced that fellow host Savannah Guthrie is undergoing eye surgery due to a retinal detachment in her right eye. “She had some laser treatment. So now she’s actually going through the surgery, and she’s going to keep us posted. We wish for her a very speedy recovery.”
The injury came as a result of an accident involving her 2-year-old son Charley. Last month, Guthrie shared that he threw a toy train at her and that the “pointy edge” hit her in the eye. She said the injury resulted in a torn retina, and that she lost vision in her right eye about a day later. Despite it all, Guthrie hosted Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and maintains a positive attitude.
