Viewers of Good Morning America heard this on Wednesday, "Robin has started her summer vacation, Lord knows she's earned it," as Roberts leaves the anchor desk earlier than she had planned.
Roberts shocked viewers of GMA on Tuesday when she announced she's leaving to rest up before a bone marrow transplant. In June, she revealed she needs the transplant to fight a rare blood disorder caused by treatment she received for breast cancer five years ago.
On Wednesday, Roberts thanked fans in a tweet, "Feeling much better. Never appreciated vacation more. Xo."
