Aww! Disappointing news to say the least!

As much as we miss her smiling face every morning, Robin Roberts is not returning to our TVs any time soon.

The talented Good Morning America host is expected to stay sidelined until May at the earliest.

Doctors insist she's recovering from her bone marrow transplant right on schedule, but we bet she's itching to get back into the studio!

And we know her fans — us included — are going through severe withdrawal!

We hope your holiday has been relaxing, Robin! Get well soon!

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.

Robin Roberts had her bone marrow transplant yesterday!

The procedure only took five minutes!

Her sister's donor cells were injected into her and now they just have to wait.

During this time, she's very vulnerable because they basically just hit the reset button on her immune system.

The doctor who is treating Robin said the following about it:

Robin Roberts: My Body Is Weak

Filed under: HealthCancer

Robin Roberts wrote a blog post for ABC News recently.

In it, she talked about how chemo is getting to her, and how she will have a day of rest on Wednesday before undergoing her bone marrow transplant.

In her blogpost she said:

"Last Sunday to lift my spirits I threw a little party at my apartment for my “GMA” family. The next morning I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels — mom & dad — back together and blazing a trail ahead of me.

The start of last week went well but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going.

So today is my last day of chemo… Wednesday is called a day of rest, yay, right! The transplant is scheduled for Thursday morning.

Bless you & Onward!"

We know you're gonna pull through this!

You're too strong not to!

We wish her nothing but a speedy and full recovery!
