Robin Roberts made a live appearance on " Good Morning America" today, announcing plans to return to the show.
"I'm coming home," Roberts said in a live interview from her New York City apartment. "We're talking now a matter of weeks, not months."
Roberts announced that her most recent test, 138 days after the bone marrow transplant she underwent in September, showed no sign of abnormality, meaning she can begin the process of returning to "GMA."
"I'm so happy to be sharing this news with everybody," Roberts said. "We're going to take it step by step…I'm listening to my doctors. I'm taking everything into account but this is a next step and I'm so excited to be sharing it with everyone."
Roberts, a former ESPN anchor, likened the process of her return to an athlete coming off the injured reserve list, easing their way back into the game as opposed to jumping into the starting lineup
