This is so sad.
We just mentioned yesterday that Robin Roberts took her medical leave from Good Morning America a day early so she could go visit with her ailing mother — we just had no idea how close she was to passing.
Here's what a source said:
"Robin arrived home with her sister Sally Ann forging through flooded and blocked roads to be with her beloved Mother in time to see her. It has always been clear where Robin got her strength, faith and spirit. You didn't need to look far."
Making it home in time is nothing short of amazing.
We can't express how sorry we are about this, Robin. The timing couldn't be worse, either — we just hope you can still focus on your own surgery and recovery somehow.
