One of the reasons we're on the couch. Many is robin's last week at "gma" before starting medical leave on friday. You drilled into us that great phrase, live life is a journey, not a destination. This week, we're going bring a lot of our "gma" family in on your journey. As we count off the last few days. I can't imagine not getting up and being here. Friday will be my last day. And I will check into the hospital the following tuesday, and begin the process -- it takes about ten days after being admitted. There are things to go through before the transplant actually occurs. And what I really enjoy about this week, too. We're going the share others' stories. It's rare to have mds. Mine was because of complications from the breast cancer treatment. There's a family, all three of their children have mds. And they're incredible. Their story. Ooel share that with you tomorrow. So many people having questions about what exactly is this. And having a bone mare roe transplant. We've been talking about donors. My sister is a perfect match. Getting a lot of time with big sis. I'm telling you. Right there. She was here. She's been taking shots to help her prepare. This was yesterday, last night in my apartment. I'm just hanging on tight to sister sally. But, how people are donating and just becoming a part of the registry. But it's a -- it's been quite a journey. No question about that. You've shared a lot on twitter. We all saw k.J. Over the weekend. He's been in my life almost 15 years. That's her new big brother. And I do mean big. Rory. She's up in maine now. When you have a bone marrow transplant, you're susceptible to infection. That was really hard. The things you have to go through. It will be okay, k.J. Let me tell you this. I'm very blessed. Because someone sent me a stat, 40% of americans cannot take a sick day. And here, disney, abc news, have been -- they've been phenomenal in just their support and I know I'm going to have a job when i come back. Just the comfort. I know that is not the norm.
