ABC's "Good Morning America" updated viewers Thursday on the progress of its ailing co-anchor, who received a bone-marrow transplant three weeks ago to combat the blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome.

Here's an excerpt from Roberts' latest blog post:

"Home Sweet Home. That has never had quite so much meaning before.

"After exactly one month in the hospital dreaming of this day, I am finally home...This doesn’t mean that my journey is over.  Far from it.  I am considered 21 days old. That's how long it has been since my transplant. Remember when you brought your baby home for the first time? Your precious bundle didn't leave the house much and you were careful that anyone who came in contact with your child was healthy. So I will still be resting away from GMA until I'm given the all clear, but sleeping in my own bed again feels like a big victory."

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
