"I\u2019m so grateful for all the good wishes during my recent illness," he says a few days after his surgery. "Happy to say that the worst has passed, and I\u2019ll be out of the hospital in a day of two, then back to work (unless\u00a0@TheVannaWhite\u00a0has completely taken over!)"\r\n\r\nSajak is currently one of the longest-running hosts in the United States. He has been hosting Wheel of Fortune alongside co-host Vanna White since the early 1980s.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis past week, Sajak actually took to social media in light of Thanksgiving with some good-hearted Sajak humor. "At our Thanksgiving meal today we discussed politics (\u201cWho votes for more cranberries?\u201d), gender issues (\u201cIs that a boy bird or a girl bird?\u201d) and climate change (\u201cThat oven is making it warm in here!\u201d). Hope you\u2019re having a good one, too!"\r\n\r\nLeave it to Pat Sajak to give us some great Thanksgiving humor. We're so glad to hear he's doing better these days!
