NEW YORK , July 14 (UPI) -- Jimmy Fallon is finally back at The Tonight Show after suffering from ring avulsion.
Monday was the host's first night back in over two weeks. On June 26, Fallon was forced to cancel the tapping of his show because fell and ripped his ring finger out of it's socket.
"I tripped and fell in my kitchen on a braided rug that my wife loves and that I can't wait to burn to the ground," the comedian said.
After Fallon fell and realized his finger looked like something out of a horror movie, he went to the emergency room, where they told him his ring got caught on the counter and ripped his finger off, which is called ring avulsion.
In most cases, the finger is amputated, but luckily for Fallon, a microsurgeon took a vein from his foot, and in about two months the SNL alumni will regain feeling in his hand.
He spent six hours in surgery and 10 days in the ICU at Bellevue Hospital in New York City.
After being away from his desk for that long and with ample amounts of free time during his hospital stay, Fallon couldn't wait to get back to his nightly gig.
"I belong in TV and I should be talking to people who are watching who are either in an ICU -- or wherever you are, at home -- if anyone's suffering at all, this is my job. I'm here to make you laugh. I want to make you have a good time. Get out of that hospital! Get out! I'm telling you, you're going to be fine. Listen to your nurses! They will get you out!" He added, "That's my job. That's why I'm here. That's what I want to do. I want to spread the love."
