Guthrie's eye injury saga began in November of 2019 after her son Charley accidentally hit her in the eye with a toy train, causing a retinal tear. After undergoing multiple laser treatments in an attempt to avoid surgery, the co-host underwent retinal detachment surgery in December of 2019, forcing her to miss several days of the morning show as she recovered. Although the surgery "worked, Guthrie later revealed that she would have to undergo a second procedure after suffering complications from the first.
As Guthrie prepared for surgery Monday morning, many fans flocked to social media to send well wishes, expressing their hopes that she has a speedy recovery. Keep scrolling to see how fans are sending Guthrie well wishes as she heads into surgery.
