Robin Roberts gives health update on "GMA" blog

FILE - This Aug. 20, 2012 file photo released by ABC shows co-host Robin Roberts during a broadcast of "Good Morning America," in New York. Roberts has said goodbye to "Good Morning America," but only for a while. The "GMA" anchor made her final appearance Thursday, Aug. 30, before going on medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. Roberts' departure was first planned for Friday, but she chose to exit a day early to visit her ailing mother in Mississippi. In July she first disclosed that she has MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease. She will be hospitalized next week to prepare for the transplant.

Robin Roberts says her blood count is "great" following her bone marrow transplant to treat MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease.

The "Good Morning America" co-host filled her fans on the show's blog on Thursday.

"Today is what I like to call 'Thankful Thursday, aka Friday Eve," she wrote. " My bone marrow transplant took place exactly two weeks ago. The only numbers that matter are my blood counts and they are...GREAT! My sister Sally-Ann's stem cells apparently feel right at home in my body - an answer to so many prayers."

Roberts continues to thank her friends and family for support, noting that fellow "GMA" co-hosts Josh Elliott and Sam Champion came to visit.

"I truly FEEL and thank you for your love, prayers and good wishes. And I return it to you tenfold. Light Love Power Presence. XO."

In Roberts' absence, guest co-hosts have been filling her shoes. Ann Romney is scheduled to be stepping in for Roberts as well as Stephen Colbert, Oprah Winfrey and the cast of "Modern Family."
