We previously mentioned that Robin Roberts had her bone marrow transplant.
The five minute procedure was quick and easy, but it'll take a while to see if the procedure is actually helping her.
So because of the length of the recovery time, she won't be returning to Good Morning America anytime soon.
A source close to Robin said:
"Robin is doing great and her blood tests are indicating that in the very early stages of receiving the bone marrow transplant to treat her MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) her body is recovering well. Robin isn't expected to return to work until next year though despite probably being released from the hospital at the end of October.
Robin is exhausted from the chemo she had to undergo before the transplant but she remains in very good spirits. This is much tougher physically for her than the treatment she had for breast cancer, but Robin is a fighter and truly believes that this happened to her for a reason. Since the MDS diagnosis, Robin wanted to bring awareness to the need for bone marrow donors. Robin was lucky that her sister was a match for her but she is determined to do everything possible for others suffering with cancer."
So she may be released from the hospital in a few weeks, which is great news because we know she really just wants to go home!
We wouldn't care if she took years off from work, we just want her to get better!
Also we hope she's better in weeks, not years. LOLz!
