Al and Deborah finally enjoyed a night at the theater

The couples’ date night comes after Deborah joined Al at Today for his big return on Friday 6 January to share details of his recent health battle, which saw him undergo a seven-hour surgery and lose half of his blood after he suffered internal bleeding.

It was revealed that Al’s issues started out “as a few stomach pains” before escalating to blood clots in his lungs, which doctors suspect stemmed from him having COVID-19 in September.

He also had internal bleeding, which resulted in surgery that revealed two bleeding ulcers. “I lost half my blood. They were trying to figure out where it was,” he said on the show of his medical team at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

The surgery turned into a seven-hour operation as doctors also resectioned Al’s colon, took out his gallbladder, and operated on his duodenum, part of the small intestine. “I went into for one operation, and I got four free,” Al joked.
