NEW YORK -- Robin Roberts’ grueling road to recovery will be bringing her back to the "Good Morning America" anchor desk soon.
Appearing from her home on Monday’s show, Roberts wore a broad smile as she announced that her most recent bone marrow test showed no sign of the life-threatening disease that has kept her off the air for months.
That means she can begin the process of returning to the anchor chair, she said, emphasizing she needs to go through a "process of re-entry."
"I’m coming home," she declared during a festive appearance complete with "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" played as a musical accompaniment.
The good news came 138 days after Roberts’ September bone marrow transplant. The donor for the 52-year-old Roberts was her older sister, Sally-Ann.
In June, Roberts disclosed that she had MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease. Her last day on "GMA" was Aug. 30.
Roberts likened her getting back on the air full-time to an athlete getting back on the field after an injury.
"They don’t go right back into the starting lineup. They go to practice, they throw the ball, and see how their body reacts," she explained.
