And... she's back! Yes, already.

Less than a month after taking a medical leave of absence from Good Morning America, due to a rare blood disorder, Robin Roberts returned to the co-anchor's chair this morning alongside George Stephanopoulos.

"My needle was past 'E' when I left here a couple of weeks ago, but I've got a full tank so watch out," the 51-year-old told viewers, adding that her three-week vacation included a trip to Italy. "I haven't taken this much time off in quite some time."

Robert was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome earlier this year and will undergo a bone marrow transplant on September 5. She'll continue to receive chemotherapy treatments as well.

But nothing could dampen her spirits this morning, as the GMA mainstay since 2005 added via Twitter:

"Merry Monday@GMA. Great to be back with George, Sam, Josh, Lara and YOU! Rested and rarin' to go again….you have been warned. :-) xxoo"
