The world famous "Jeopardy!" host, Alex Trebek, is needing prayers for his road to recovery after suffering a recent fall. On Thursday, it was announced he would be taking a medical leave after the incident.
According to Fox News, Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on December 15 after experiencing some complications that reportedly stemmed from a bump on the head he took during a fall in October.
While at the hospital, doctors discovered that he suffered a subdural hematoma. They proceeded to take him to surgery to remove the blood clots from his brain. At this time, Trebek is doing well and is at home recovering.
“Surgery was performed, after two days in the hospital, I came home to start recovery. The prognosis is excellent and I expect to be back in the studio taping more ‘Jeopardy!’ programs very, very soon,” he said. “And I want to thank all of you for your concern."
Trebek's medical leave is reportedly not going to affect the popular game show. It is taped months in advance, so the schedule can continue while he recovers. He has hosted the iconic television program since 1984.
“The prognosis is excellent and I expect to be back in the studio taping more ‘Jeopardy!’ programs very, very soon,” he said.
