Transcript for Robin Roberts Thanks Co-Anchors for Support
This is really special for me to be here this morning. We've been saying it. I look over and see my brother-in-law, ron, who is here because my sister is here, as well. Ron doesn't get on tv. Don't do that, scott. He is a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. Until now. Until now. Thank you, lara. Thank you, josh. Missing sam in the field, where he needs to be. And of course, george, in tampa, this morning. George, miss you. I miss you, too, robin. You should know, everyone is starting to gather here, as well. To give you a little bit of a farewell. As you announced earlier, this is your last morning for a little while here on "gma." And you've been so sensitive to our audience because you know how many questions they have about your treatment. And that's why, in just a little bit, I know your doctor and sister will be joining us in a few minutes, to answer the questions that everyone has on their minds right now. We're also going to tell all of our viewers how to join team robin every day, coming up. Thank you for that, george. Yes. Got to get home to mississippi. Our beloved mother, the matriarch of our family, 88 years old, has had some health issues recently. And it's gotten to a point that sally ann and I need to get home. So, leaving a day early for that. And next week, I start my treatments for bone marrow transplant. As george said, so many asking questions. That's why my sister is over there. My great doctor. They're going to try to get -- my sister, just yesterday, was collecting her stem cells. Two days of that. And she's here this morning, looking like that. Harvesting. The gift of life. Going to share with others. And a lot of people asking, when you will be back. We know you will be back soon. As soon as I can. This is just a little step away. And everything, hopefully, will be running as smoothly as we can to keep it going in your absence. We're not going to lie. It's not going to be like it is when you're here. You know what? It is going to be. And I asked them to have this ready. I hope you have it ready, e.O.D. When I'm going on a little speed bump and I need a little oomph, I'm going to think of this very moment. And I know we're going to see these moments again. And we're going to have these moments when I come back. And I'm stalling so they can get it. They're trying to get it. Keep stalling. You are going to keep the spirit going. You're going to keep the spirit going. Do you have it? This is going to be my happy spot. ♪ Now we're up in the big leagues ♪ ♪ get my turn at bat you and me, baby ♪ ♪ ain't nothing wrong with that ♪ ♪ moving on up moving on up ♪ there's going to be more mornings like that when I'm away. There will be mornings like that when I get back. Amen to that. We talk in sports metaphors a lot, as former athletes at this desk. And you're the team captain. And the team is going to run in your absence because you're never really going to be gone. No way. I'll be watching you in my jammies. What do you say? There they are. See? George, sam, you know, you're here. Hey, robin? Robin -- we always will be with you, every day. Who's going to be law and order when you're not there? Yeah. That is -- sometimes, I do send an e-mail to joe every now and then, how are the kids doing? How are the kids?
