Today Show, Part 2: Emily the Ice Skater

This day was so special. Emily, Bill and I visited the Today Show to talk about how the Today Show and my Post article helped to get Emily diagnosed with anti-NMDA-receptor autoimmune encephalitis. I had a hard time keeping myself together on camera, especially since it was the first time that I saw the video footage of Emily in the hospital on a ventilator. ┬áIt was a rough image, and watching Bill’s face crumpling as he looked on to his now healthy daughter, was almost too much. In the end, though, this segment is testament to the fact that sometimes out of our darkest moments comes light.

(Plus, as a side bar, we got to meet Padma Lakshmi and Nick Cannon in the cramped greenroom).
