The “Today” co-anchor announced the move when she tweeted, “Headed off for cataract surgery! This was an expected complication after retina detachment. Very hopeful to be seeing [a hundred percent] and back at work this week!”

[Savannah Guthrie] has been on the road to recovery since 2019 when her now-3-year-old son, Charles Max Feldman, accidentally hit her with a toy train and tore her retina.

Soon after she dropped the tweet, her fans flooded her replies with well-wishes. While one person wished her a “speedy recovery,” another wanted her to acquire “good health and perfect vision.”

While hoping that Savannah enjoys “a quick and easy recovery,” a third fan advised the journalist to “get some soft toys for the kids.”

A fourth person exclaimed that she couldn’t wait for Savannah to regain her vision and a fifth person stated that she wished for the 48-year-old’s sight to be “brought back to normal.” Today, however, shared that Savannah expressed her feelings about the surgery when she said:

“I feel like it's Christmas morning because if they remove this cataract, I'll really be able to see, and I've had a hard time seeing.”

The mother-of-two has been on the road to recovery since 2019 when her now-3-year-old son, Charles Max Feldman, accidentally hit her with a toy train and tore her retina.

According to People, soon after the incident, Savannah’s doctors suggested that she undergo retinal surgery after they failed to correct the tear with laser procedures.

What getting a retinal surgery meant for the mother-of-two was a break from work as she would need to “sit facedown” for 1 to 3 weeks after the surgery. The news outlet noted that Savannah spoke on the severity of the issue when she stated:

“I really did lose my vision in my right eye. It was so blurry from — not to get too gross — but there was so much blood in my eye that it completely blocked my vision.”

While joking that her son was a “bruiser,” Savannah claimed that he had no idea how much the toy train incident affected his mother.
