“My youngest, Hope, was in the ICU for a few days and in the hospital for a little more than a week. I’m so grateful she’s home. She is back home. I was waiting for that day to come. And we are watching her closely. I’m just so happy,” Kotb said.

“And you know what I realized, too, Savannah? It’s like, when your child is ill, the amount of gratitude you can have for people who helped you out,” she said.
