Robin Roberts returns to 'Good Morning America' for first dry-run

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Good Morning America cohost Robin Roberts has returned to the ABC set for her first test run post bone-marrow transplant.

ABC reports that Roberts returned to the set at 5am for her first scheduled “dry run” back to work. “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,” Roberts gushed. “I can’t wait to get back to the anchor chair in a few weeks.”

An excited Roberts took to Twitter to inform her followers. “Thankful Thursday. Took a "test drive" w/ my @GMA fam this morn. Felt great to be back in the studio,” she wrote Thursday.

According to ABC, Roberts informed her fans of what doctors will expect during this dry run. “My doctors want me to see how many people I actually come in contact with. How my body reacts to the stimulation, that's code word for stress, of being in the studio environment," she explained.

She adds, "My skin is very sensitive and so we have to see how it reacts to the studio lights. My vision is still a little blurry from the treatment.”

Roberts is hopeful to return to work by March.
