Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts leaves the hospital where she underwent a bone marrow transplant to help in her fight against cancer.
However, she won’t be returning to the ABC morning show anytime soon.
“My doctors will be monitoring me closely, and I will still be at the hospital regularly to make sure we’re on the right track,” she added. “I cannot thank my amazing medical team enough. I have a great deal of respect and admiration for how they treat all their patients with such passion and compassion.”
Roberts was captured in a momentous video segment for GMA that they aired on Thursday, and her co-stars went to twitter to show how excited they were for her.
“How GREAT is it to see our sister @RobinRoberts going home!!!!!!!!!” Lara Spencer wrote, while George Stephanopolous added, “What a great morning!!! @RobinRoberts is waking up at home today #TeamRobin.”
Robin’s doctor, Gail Roboz, said on the air this Thursday that it has not been an easy journey for the TV star.
“There were very hard days, and a lot of unpleasantness,” Roboz said, adding that the days ahead are important. “She’s got to get her hair back, get her strength back, rebuild in every sense.” Roboz said Roberts will have to wear masks and gloves to protect her fragile immune system. “The bugs of the world are the terrorists.” Roboz also said Roberts’ first bone marrow biopsy, “coming up soon,” will give an even better idea, of how she’s doing.
