A week before she is set to return to “Good Morning America,” ABC’s Robin Roberts talks with People magazine about her recovery from a bone marrow transplant:

It was a few days after Roberts, 52, underwent the transplant for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. “I couldn’t eat or drink,” she says. “I couldn’t even get out of bed.”

Fading in and out of consciousness, Roberts recalls, “I was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away … then I kept hearing my name.”

Five months later, Roberts, a breast cancer survivor, says she’s finally beginning to feel like her old self again: “It’s an amazing feeling, each day feeling stronger.”

Roberts’ first day back on is February 20. TVNewser will be on the set of “GMA” for her first broadcast.
