Robin Roberts has announced that she could be returning to “Good Morning America” as early as February. It was thought that she would have a much longer road to recovery than just weeks, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. It sounds like good news to us!
The anchor said on Monday, “I’m coming home. We’re talking about weeks, not months.”
She did the live interview from her apartment, where she has been recovering from her bone marrow transplant in September 2012. She said that next week she would be doing a “dry run” when she’ll be going to the studio for hair and makeup.
She revealed, “After I go through this dry run, my doctors will sit down with me again and we’ll evaluate where I am. I should be back sometime in February. I have a date in mind that’s very personal and very important to me, but I will ultimately listen to, of course, what my doctors say. There are a lot of factors still.”
She added, “I am excited, but there’s a range of emotions. I haven’t been live on television since the end of August. My heart is beating so fast right now, but — you know what? — it means I’m alive. I’m alive, and I’m so grateful to be as excited as I am, and I can’t wait to be back.”
Good for her. We are super glad to hear that her recovery is going along nicely. Kudos to her for being a great success story and inspiration to those who are going through similar difficulties in life. We commend her.
