Good news for Robin Roberts fans: The "Good Morning America" anchor announced on Monday that she will be returning to the show.
Roberts left "GMA" on Aug. 30 to undergo a bone marrow transplant for treatment of a rare disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS. Her sister, Sally Ann, provided the donor cells.
In a live interview, Roberts provided fans and colleagues with an update on her health, explaining that, because her most recent tests showed no signs of abnormalities, she would begin the gradual transition back to work next week.
The first order of business will be reacclimating her body to the demanding morning-show routine, particularly the 4 a.m. wake-up calls."
Another concern is how her sensitive skin will fare under the harsh studio lights and whether her immune system is ready to come into contact with dozens of people at the height of flu season. Roberts will do a "dry run" next week, coming to the studio for hair and makeup.
Though no exact return date was announced, Roberts predicted she would be back on the air full time sometime in February.
