A standing ovation from her crew greeted Robin Roberts at the door of the ABC Times Square studio of Good Morning America, even before the sun rose Wednesday – exactly five months after the anchor had a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, a rare blood disorder.

Outside, in the street, a crowd of fans had already gathered with placards, banners and even an ebullient fellow from Dallas waving what he called the world's largest wristband, hailing his heroine. It read, "Welcome Back Robin."

Once the show hit the air, Roberts, with her colleagues surrounding her, looked into the camera, broke into a great big smile, and announced: "Hi, it's Robin. I've been waiting 174 days to do this: Good Morning America!"

Describing the overwhelming reaction he's received both in person and through social media, Champion said, "I felt like we lived in a small town. … I was born in Paducah, Kentucky, and to me that's exactly what it felt like.

Doctor: Robin Roberts 'Energized' After Bone Marrow Transplant | Robin Roberts

Robin Roberts 'Energized,' Wants to Go Home After Transplant, Says Doctor

Originally posted 09/21/2012 10:30AM

The doctor for Good Morning America host Robin Roberts said Friday that her star patient was "energized" after a five-minute bone marrow transplant on Thursday and was now being monitored for signs of recovery.

Dr. Gail Roboz, speaking on GMA, said Roberts, in characteristic fighting fashion, had already sent her an email message saying she "wanted to go home!"

But, the oncologist, who called Roberts, 51, "a powerhouse," noted that the next 7-10 days were crucial for the injected stem cells, donated by Roberts's sister Sally-Ann, to grow properly, ridding her of the rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome.

"It's not instant," Roboz told show host George Stephanopoulos. "Rebuilding ... takes weeks to months," with a goal of leaving the hospital in about 30 days.

Thursday is Robin Roberts's new birthday. It is the day she is receiving her bone-marrow transplant.

The TV anchor, 51, also delivered a taped message from her New York hospital bed, which was shown on Thursday's Good Morning America during a segment about her medical journey to treat her rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome.

Wearing a bright pink baseball cap, Roberts, who's had eight days of intense chemotherapy during her 11 days in the hospital, said: "This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body. Your thoughts … are so powerful. You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel. And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it. Thank you."

Robert Pattinson: 'I'm Not Interested in Selling My Personal Life'

Robert Pattinson – live in Times Square!

Hundreds of fans lined up overnight to see the star arrive at the Good Morning America studios on Wednesday, but those hoping to hear Pattinson, 26, pour out his broken heart over his long-term girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders might have walked away somewhat frustrated – and yet still enlightened.

Referring to the cheating scandal as the elephant in the room that could not be avoided, GMA co-anchor George Stephanopoulos pressed Pattinson on the subject, with the actor refusing the bait for as long as he possibly could. (He did, however, take one thing from the anchor: his his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which Stephanopoulos presented to him at the top of the interview.)

"I've never been interested in selling my personal life," said Pattinson, who said he was there to promote his new movie, Cosmopolis, which opens Friday. Still, the actor acknowledged that his being on TV made him a target for personal questions.

BORN: ABC This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos and his wife, actress-comedian Ali Wentworth, welcomed a new daughter, Harper Andrea, Thursday morning in a Washington, D.C.-area hospital, reports The Washington Post. The arrival weighed 6 lbs. 9 oz. and measured 19" long – the same arrival weight and length of Harper's older sister, Elliott, who is 2, says the paper, which adds that the expectant dad helped fuel the delivery process by picking up a burrito from a local Tex-Mex restaurant called Austin Grill. "People should just save the trouble of inducing labor and eat there," said Stephanopoulous.
