'GMA' anchor Robin Roberts experiences health setback

The inspirational return of "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts from a series of health scares had a bit of a hiccup this week after a setback in her recovery.

Roberts is currently resting at home after a recent stay in the hospital relating to her recovery from myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare bone marrow and blood disorder she was diagnosed with last year.

The anchor addressed the latest developments to fans on her Facebook page, writing, "Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days."

Roberts rejoined the rest of the "Good Morning America" morning show crew after recuperating following a bone marrow transplant in September. She returned in earlier this year on a part-time basis to ensure that her hosting duties would not interfere with her full recovery from the disorder, eventually resuming her full-time hosting duties.

She continued, "Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off 'opportunistic infections.' My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon. It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe. I'm feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. I'll be back on GMA next week...as my sweet momma would say: 'Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!'"

Best of luck to Robin Roberts in her continuing recovery.
