Good Morning America host Robin Roberts took to her Facebook Thursday to tell her fans she’s been absent this week from the morning show due to hospitalization.
She started the message by expressing her condolences to the Bostom bombing victims, adding, “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.”
The anchor, who underwent a bone marrow transplant in September to treat a rare blood disorder, explained that her hospitalization will be brief. ”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.”
She closed, saying, “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!’”
Get well soon, Robin!
