Robin Roberts has finally received some good news that most would only wish to get from their doctors.
"Doctors orders to put on a lil weight,” the Good Morning America anchor, 51, tweeted Friday, a week after beginning her medial leave to treat her myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with a bone marrow treatment. “That's a first.”
Roberts also added in her tweet update, "Back home in NYC. Will rest a few days ... Transplant now sched for next week. Onward."
The morning show personality will be undergoing a bone marrow, which was donated by her sister Sally. The siblings have also endured the passing of their 88-year-old mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, on Thursday Aug. 30.
Roberts was able to make it back in time from New York City to her mother’s home in Mississippi to be by her side before she let go.
She also paid homage to her mom on her Facebook page, writing on an entry on Sept. 4, "I find great comfort in knowing my mother lived an amazing life. To help me deal with my immense grief my family tells me momma gave me one final gift as her last act. She waited for me to get home on Thursday to say goodbye. 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 found a way to be with me every step of the way on my journey. I am humbled by her selflessness. Today I was supposed to be admitted to the hospital," Roberts went on. "Instead I am here in Mississippi standing proudly with my family as we honor our beloved mother and celebrate her life. 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.”
