LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jay Leno was seen today, November 23, visiting the hospital to gift the medical staff who treated his third-degree burns with cookies and cards as a sign of gratitude for looking after him. The 72-year-old returned to the Grossman Burn Center in his blue Tesla after his 115-year-old 1907 White Steam Car engine exploded and burned his face. He was discharged on Monday, November 21, after spending 10 days in the LA hospital for treatment for the serious burns. The burn marks are still visible on his body, reported Daily Mail.

Leno was seen carrying a box of cookies from the modish Los Angeles Milk Bar, along with a thank you note on the eve of Thanksgiving while sporting a stylish double denim ensemble. He was also photographed carrying out a box of what appeared to look like gifts and placing it in the trunk of his car. Leno then made a beeline toward the Chick-fil-A drive-thru to grab some food. The iconic TV host was at his home on November 12 when one of his cars 'erupted into flames without warning' with the star later requiring skin-graft surgery.

On Tuesday, November 22, Leno stopped at a gas station and told the paparazzi who greeted him that was doing "good" and still has plans to drive the very same car which exploded into flames next week as the "car didn't do anything wrong." Dr Peter Grossman, Leno's doctor, previously stated that the former late-night show host may suffer from permanent scarring due to the incident but said in a statement that he is pleased with his progress after he spent time in an oxygen chamber.

Dr Grossman added that he is hopeful that Leno will make a complete recovery as he continues to receive outpatient care. Leno also disclosed that he will be performing at the Comedy Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, California at 7 pm on Sunday, November. The star replied, "Yeah, I need barbecue!" when a snapper suggested he get some rest before the show, according to Daily Mail.

"He's got a very strong attitude. He's a very strong individual," Dr Peter Grossman told ET of Leno's recovery. "And he's a person who really is looking to move forward, to try to find a way to get past this episode of his life and to get back to what he normally likes to do, which is to be out there and entertain and be with the people. I think at some point soon he'll get there, but I've had to tell him that, for the time being, he needs to sit back and take care of Jay."

Leno thanked one of his friends who used his presence of mind to save his life during the explosion. "I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet," Leno said in a statement. He later told TMZ that his friend, Dave, saved his life, by jumping on him and dousing the flames. The host said that he was mending a clogged fuel line when he got sprayed on his hands and face with gasoline.
