As soon as I saw the tornado warnings on TV, I had to leave the office right away. I had photographed about a dozen tornados in my decade in Oklahoma and if I didn't get into my car before the funnel cloud swept through, I knew I would get stuck in traffic and arrive too late at the scene.More >>
(ABC News) Robin Roberts will return to "Good Morning America" Wednesday after undergoing a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder, and says she has imagined the moment she will taker her seat in the anchor chair again.
"I have visualized this moment," Roberts, 52, told her "GMA" co-anchors in a candid conversation. "It's something like this, looking into Sam's blue eyes. …I love how we're sitting, how we would be sitting. …But I know when I sit back down, right in this chair, and I look over and I see you and I see you and I see you and I see you, it's gonna be, all is right in the world. And it's gonna seem like no time has passed at all."
Roberts' comeback to "GMA" Wednesday is five months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder, and a year after she began to first feel the symptoms of her illness.
She will share her personal journey battling MDS on a special edition of "20/20" Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
In a preview of the conversation with George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion that took place a few weeks ago, the anchors raised a glass to Roberts, and she opened up to them about her recovery and return.
"I remember when the doctor first told me, ‘You're gonna be out, you know, five to six months,' and I was like, ‘Ahhh!' Screaming, Oh my god!" Roberts said to laughter from the gang. "You have to do what you need to do, and it just shows people that time passes. This too shall pass."
When asked by Elliott if she's nervous, Roberts said, "Oh yeah," but it "feels great to feel the nerves again."
"We got ya. We got ya," Spencer assured.
"I haven't done live television since the end of August," Roberts said, "So I'm a little bit nervous, … but you got my back, … that's what I'm not nervous about. … I know that you have my back."
