Robin Roberts: Home from Hospital, Recovering from Virus

by at . Comments

Robin Roberts has once again updated fans on her physical condition.

The Good Morning America anchor - who has taken a leave of absence from that program following a bone marrow transplant on September 20 - just returned home against after a week in the hospital.

Robin and Sally-Ann Roberts

She was treated there for a virus that failed to respond to medication.

"Our immune systems usually take care of a virus like this ... but mine is only 59 days old," Roberts wrote in a post called "Home Sweet Home: Part II."

Added Roberts of the latest visit:

"Physically I felt fine but being back in the hospital took an emotional toll on me. The wonderful doctors, nurses and support staff lifted my spirits..it was comforting seeing them again.

Robin's sister, Sally-Ann - who donated the blood marrow and helped saved her sibling's life - flew in to The Big Apple over the weekend to assist with the discharge.

These two will be featured tomorrow morning on a special GMA segment. We recommend tuning in. With a box off tissues at the ready.
