Since the transplant her doctors have been tracking her recovery and monitoring her weakened immune system to ensure that it is successfully acclimating to the new bone marrow. Her doctors have called her recovery strong.
“What we know now is that we can’t see any of the disease that prompted this whole process right now,” her oncologist, Dr. Gail Roboz, of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center said on “GMA” last week. ”That’s really… what we were looking for. She is doing wonderfully. There are many patients who at this point after a transplant are not at all having a conversation about going back to work, let alone the type of work that she does, so we are thrilled that she’s doing so well.”
The “GMA” anchor made a special appearance in December at the New York City wedding of her “GMA” colleague Sam Champion to Rubem Robierb. Roberts played a part in the nuptials, reading a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Roberts, who has been on medical leave from “GMA” since Aug. 30, said in a statement this morning, “What a thrill to be back at ‘GMA”s Times Square Studio this morning and see the best folks in the world, my ‘GMA’ family. I can’t wait to get back to the anchor chair in a few weeks.”
