Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts has received her first set of good news in months, her blood tests look good and she now has the chance to work towards getting back to the anchor chair.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Roberts’ test results showed no abnormalities following a bone marrow transplant to help treat Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare blood disorder she was diagnosed with spring 2012.
EW notes that Roberts responded to the good news telling fans “I’m coming home.”
Roberts is going to test her energy by doing a faux-day at work. “l'll get up, go to the studio. I’ll have makeup and hair,” she explained. “Well, makeup. We’ll talk about the hair later.” This will help Roberts and her doctors gauge how ready she is to be out in the lights and to see how her skin reacts to the makeup and studio camera lights.
She explains, “My doctors will sit down with me again and we’ll evaluate where I am. We’re talking now weeks, not months. I should be back sometime in February.”
Roberts did not offer an official return date.
