Prayers up for Alex Trebek who will be taking a leave from Jeopardy after undergoing surgery y to remove blood clots from his brain, Trebek and his production team said Thursday.
According to CNN:
Trebek, 77, was diagnosed in mid-December with a condition known as subdural hematoma, a complication from hitting his head in a bad fall in October, he said. He underwent surgery the following day.
“After two days in the hospital, I came home to start recovery,” Trebek said in a video posted to the game show’s website. “The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more ‘Jeopardy!’ programs very, very soon!”
He is expected to make a full and complete recovery,” the post states, noting that because the show tapes months in advance, its broadcast schedule will be unaffected except for its College Championship, which will now air in April.
