We’ll take “Medical Terms” for 500, Alex. The 77-year-old Jeopardy! host released a video Thursday night updating the public about emergency brain surgery he had in mid-December to remove blood clots from his brain. According to the Trebek, the blood clots (or “subdural hematoma” because this is Trebek we’re talking about and accuracy matters) were the result of a fall he took in October where he hit his head. It looks like he’s going to be just fine though.

“Surgery was performed. After two days in the hospital, I came home to start recovery,” he says in the video, “The progress is excellent and I expect to be back in the studio taping more Jeopardy! episodes very, very soon.”

A statement on the show’s website assured the public that since they tape months in advance, there won’t be any interruption in scheduling except for the College Championship which will be in April instead of February. Trebek is expected to be back reading answers and serving those iconic classy-yet-judgmental looks in mid-January.

Although Alex seems to be doing well hanging out at home and resting his brain, people are still pretty concerned about the host. “What is DON’T DIE ON ME TREBEK?”

If keeping your brain active is actually the way to live forever, we’re pretty sure Alex Trebek is immortal. He’s 77 and apparently making a full recovery from what the US National Library of Medicine calls “among the deadliest of all head injuries.” You go, Trebek.

Now, let’s all watch our national hero end a man by emphasizing the distinction between “gangster” and “gangsta.”
