Robin Roberts, who returned to “Good Morning America” nearly two months ago after undergoing a bone marrow transplant as part of her treatment for Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), was hospitalized last week with a minor setback in her immune system.
She writes on Facebook:
My heart continues to go out to the remarkably strong people of Boston. We stand by you now and always.
It saddens me that I haven’t been able to join my colleagues in covering this important story.
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. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off “opportunistic infections”.
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!”
Miss you and bless you..XO
Roberts’ recovery has been chronicled the whole way on “GMA,” since she revealed her diagnosis last June.
