She’s back!

Well, almost. Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts announced today that she’ll return to the ABC program on Feb. 20 — coincidentally enough, five months to the day since her bone marrow transplant.

Roberts took a medical leave of absence from Gma late last summer to treat her myelodysplastic syndrome (or Mds), a rare blood disorder. She underwent a bone marrow transplant on Sept. 20, was released from the hospital Oct. 10, and — after one more hospital stay in November — began preparing for her return to the morning program with a series of “dry runs” last month.
