Robin Roberts posted a message on her Facebook page letting fans know she’s in the hospital after feeling somewhat ill last week during her vacation in Key West. She’s sorry for not being able to help report on the Boston bomb explosions as co-anchor with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” but wanted everyone to know she’s alright.
Roberts wrote April 18:
“Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days.
“My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon. It’s extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I’m blessed that mine have not been severe.
“I’m feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. I’ll be back on GMA next week…as my sweet momma would say: ‘Good Lord willing, and the creek don’t rise!’”
Robin Roberts returned to GMA after a 174-day absence to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Many feared she was returning to work way too soon after such an exhausting ordeal. She gradually worked her way into more hours on the news program so setbacks would be minimal. From reports released, it sound like Roberts will be back on the air within the next few weeks.
