Since Robin Roberts returned to the set of “Good Morning America” in February, fans of the ABC morning news show have been overjoyed to see their favorite host progressing positively after her bone marrow transplant late last year. Unfortunately, Robin revealed on her Facebook page today that she has suffered a minor setback and had to be briefly hospitalized last week. She wrote:

My heart continues to go out to the remarkably strong people of Boston. We stand by you now and always.

It saddens me that I haven’t been able to join my colleagues in covering this important story.

Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off “opportunistic infections”.

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!”
Miss you and bless you..XO

It’s certainly good to know working hasn’t compromised Robin’s health. Here’s wishing a speedy and relaxing recovery to our favorite journalist while she rests at home. We’re looking forward to seeing her back on GMA next week and keeping her in our prayers!
