Robin Roberts Returns Home From Hospital

Submitted by on October 11, 2012 – 11:00 am Comments

Fans of Robin Roberts would be relieved to know that, she has returned home from the hospital, safe and sound. She underwent a bone marrow transplant last month, and was in the hospital since then. She admitted, while in the hospital she had already begun wondering how soon she would return home. “There’s no place like home. After 30 days in the hospital I’m home,” the Good Morning America anchor wrote Thursday on Twitter. “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Thank YOU and bless YOU. XO.”

Roberts is basically being treated for rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. Roberts on her part, realizes that although she is home, complete recovery is still a long way away. “I am considered 21 days old. That’s how long it has been since my transplant,” she wrote on her Good Morning America blog. “Remember when you brought your baby home for the first time? Your precious bundle didn’t leave the house much and you were careful that anyone who came in contact with your child was healthy.”

The analogy that she has drawn should to an extent, give you an idea of the fragile state that, she still is in. She therefore shall still remain on hiatus, until she is fully recovered. She basically wants her doctors to give her an “all clear” before she can return to work. Just like when in the hospital, she had begun counting her days for her return home; she while resting at home, would probably have begun counting the days to her return on television. Her fans too might have begun doing the same.

Roberts isn’t the one to lose hope, and gave everyone a glimpse of her optimism when she wrote in her blog “Each day I get stronger and stronger. I am fond of saying, ‘This too shall pass.’ And even in some dark moments, of which there are still a few, I now see that light at the end of the tunnel. This too really shall pass.” Till Roberts is back on GMA we are seeing and shall keep seeing other known names filling in. Including Kelly Ripa and Diane Sawyer, as well as The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Barbara Walters, lifestyle anchor Lara Spencer, correspondent Amy Robach, and 20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas. Robach and Vargas are the primary substitutes, and shall typically be switching off every other week.
