In fact, fans can look forward to Roberts stopping by the studio NEXT WEEK for what she referred to as a "dry run.

"My last bone marrow aspiration showed no abnormalities – praise God," Roberts told her colleague via satellite. "What all this means is, doctors were waiting for this information so that I can began the process of returning to the anchor chair."

The reporter underwent a bone marrow transplant on September 20 after being diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, an unusual blood disorder.

She has been recovering at home and keeping fans abreast of her recovery via Twitter posts and photos.

"I haven't been live on television since August," Roberts said. "My heart is beating so fast right now, but it means that I am alive. I am so grateful to be as inspired as I am. I can't wait 'til I get back."

And we can't wait to welcome her back with open, thankful arms.
