Robin Roberts is in the hospital as we type this.

She is about to undergo a bone marrow transplant that will keep her off the Good Morning America air for weeks and cause her great physical distress.

But the role model of an anchor still found time to send a message of hope and gratitude to her fans, filmed from her hospital bed in New York City.

"This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body. Your thoughts... are so powerful," Roberts says in the video, which you can watch at Good Morning America's Yahoo! page. "You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel. And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it. Thank you."

Roberts' physician, Dr. Gail Roboz, appeared today on GMA and said of his famous patient: "Medically speaking, she is doing fantastic."

We're so glad to hear it. And we continue to send our very best wishes to Roberts and her loved ones.

Having said goodbye to her mother for the final time last week, Robin Roberts took to Twitter this morning and bid farewell to her fans. But only for now.

In light of her pending bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder, the Good Morning America co-anchor Tweeted the following note a few hours ago:

Roberts is expected to miss two to three months as she deals with this surgery and subsequent recovery.

In her place, GMA will seat such major names as Katie Couric, Barbara Walters and Kelly Ripa alongside George Stephanopoulos. But they are merely keeping Roberts' spot warm, of course.

She has every intention of returning to the morning program and we have every intention of tuning in once she does. Get better soon, Robin! We're all pulling for you.

Robin Roberts has updated her Good Morning America blog to reflect the two major events taking place at the moment in her personal life.

The reporter tells fans she has delayed the start of her bone marrow transplant procedure because she is in Mississippi "standing proudly" with her family as loved ones say goodbye to Robin's mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, who passed away on Thursday.

She was scheduled to be admitted to the hospital today, but Roberts writes:

"When I return to NYC and walk through those hospital doors next week momma will be right there with me. Light, love and blessings to all."

Roberts goes on to say of her 88-year old mother, who was the first black woman to chair the Mississippi State Board of Education:

"She was there when I took my first breath and what a privilege to hold her sweet hand when she took her last breath... Momma knew she wasn't physically able to be with me for my bone marrow transplant. My siblings say mom wanted to spare me the agony it would have been if she had passed and I couldn't be there. That thought was weighing heavily on me.

"Momma found a way to be with me every step of the way on my journey. I am humbled by her selflessness."

The GMA co-anchor will be away from her chair for approximately two months when she does finally undergo that transplant - in order to deal with a rare blood disorder known as myelodysplastic syndrome - and we wish her nothing but the absolute best.

Her mother passed away last night.

Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts was 88 years old and the first African American to head Mississippi's Board of Education.

Roberts flew to Mississippi yesterday to be by her ailing parent's bedside and her GMA colleague George Stephanopoulos confirmed today that Robin did at least make it there in time to say goodbye.

A note was distributed to ABC staff members last night that referred to Robin's "beautiful and inspiring mother" and added: "It has always been clear where Robin got her strength, faith and spirit. You didn't need to look far."
