Robin Roberts back home after another stint in hospital

Robin Roberts spent two days in the hospital fighting off an infection as part of her recuperation from a rare blood disease and is off “Good Morning America” this week to rest.

The ABC morning show host said she felt ill last week while on vacation and was told to return to New York and go to the hospital. She’s home now, and posted on Facebook on Thursday that she’s feeling better.

Roberts underwent a bone marrow transplant in September to treat MDS. She was off work for five months before returning to the top-rated network morning show on a part-time basis in February.

“It’s extremely common, post-bone marrow transplant, to have complications,” she wrote. “I’m blessed that mine have not been severe.”

She said she planned to be back next week.
