After suffering a health setback that included a brief stay at the hospital, "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts says she's been given the all clear to return back to work.
"My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon. It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe. I'm feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. I'll be back on GMA next week...as my sweet momma would say: 'Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!'"
Roberts returned to her co-hosting duties for "Good Morning America" in February after a nearly six-month leave of absence to battle myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare bone marrow and blood disorder. Following her public appeal for more people to sign up to become bone marrow donors through BeTheMatch.org more than 56,000 answered the call.
“I’m stronger than I thought I was," she told Parade earlier this month. "My favorite phrase has been ‘This too shall pass.’ I now understand it really well.”
