Robin Roberts Returns Home from Hospital; Says ‘Praise God from whom All Blessings Flow’

She didn’t get to click her heels together in red sparkly shoes like Dorothy from The Wiz. But Good Morning America Anchor Robin Roberts tweeted “There's no place like home,” and proceeded to give God praise for allowing her to return to her personal digs safely, after a successful bone marrow transplant procedure.

“After 30 days in the hospital I'm home. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Thank YOU and bless YOU. XO,” wrote the grateful recovering patient.

To fight her MDS, doctors transplanted bone marrow from the journalist’s sister Sally-Ann and so far, so good.  "My doctors tell me her cells are making themselves right at home and with the grace of God, I pray that they will continue to do so," Roberts wrote on her GMA blog.

Though Roberts has made the transition from hospital to home, her journey is not complete. “Far from it,” she said. “I will still be resting away from GMA until I'm given the all clear, but sleeping in my own bed again feels like a big victory.”

Roberts, 51, is considered “21 days old,” the length of time it’s been since her transplant. She compares herself to a 21-day-old baby that a new mother guards closely and protects fiercely from germs, and infection.

Though she has quite a bit of road left to travel along this health journey, Roberts, a Christian woman of great faith in God’s healing power, realizes it was not merely good fortune that has carried her to this point.

“I know it is your prayers and warm thoughts that have gotten me this far.  I truly feel them each and every day,” she said. “I humbly ask that you please continue to send them until you see me back at the GMA anchor desk and I promise to send them right back at ya.” 

When days get tough, Roberts reminds herself that “This Too Shall Pass.”

I can't complain about anything. If this woman can keep a smile on her face in the midst of poor health, I can keep on trucking with a smile on my face, no matter what I'm going through and trust God.
