Robin Roberts has returned to the Good Morning America studio for a test run on Thursday.
The anchor, 51, is returning to the studio after undergoing a bone marrow transplant in September. She has since been updating her fans on her progress.
“What a thrill to be back at GMA's Times Square Studio this morning and see the best folks in the world, my GMA family," she said during an interview, Us Weekly reports. "I can't wait to get back to the anchor chair in a few weeks."
For the next few weeks, Roberts will be doing more test runs to ease her way back into working.
"After I go through this dry run, my doctors will sit down with me again and we'll evaluate where I am,” she said last week. “I should be back sometime in February . . . I have a date in mind that's very personal and very important to me, but I will ultimately listen to, of course, what my doctors say . . . There are a lot of factors still."
Roberts’ symptoms from myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood and bone marrow disorder, are blurred vision and skin sensitivity, so her doctors are making sure she takes baby steps.
"My doctors want me to see how many people I actually come in contact with," she explained. "How my body reacts to the stimulation, that's code word for stress, of being in the studio environment."
