Roberts is taking a little time off, saying she's feeling the effects of her blood and bone marrow disease. Roberts said Tuesday that she's “not feeling too well” and would take some time off “just to get some vacay.” ABC said Roberts would be taking a few weeks of previously scheduled time off, but it came earlier than her planned medical leave for a bone marrow transplant.

    Good Morning America host Robin Roberts bumped up her planned medical leave a day, making Thursday her last morning with the show. The longtime host is taking leave to prepare for and undergo a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with MDS, a rare blood and bone marrow disorder. A major portion of Thursday’s GMA was devoted to Roberts and her journey, and an A-list roster of rotating hosts was announced to fill her seat, including Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, and Kelly Ripa. It’s unclear when Robert will return, but she closed the show with, “This is just see ya later.”
