Robin Roberts Post-Bone Marrow Transplant: "Now We Wait and Pray"

Robin Roberts ABC News

Just because Robin Roberts is still recovering from her bone marrow transplant two weeks ago doesn't mean a girl can't have any fun.

The Good Morning America cohost posted a series of updates on Twitter, letting fas know she's doing OK in the wake of the Sept. 20 procedure in which she received donor cells from her sister, Sally-Ann, to treat a rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome.

Roberts also revealed that while doctors have placed her in isolation to prevent infection, she's passing the time with an "isolation mix" of her favorite tunes, including hits by The Temptations.

"In hosp surrounded by loved ones 9 days post BMT. With the temptations singing: Can't get next to you..perfect for isolation,any others?" she tweeted on Saturday.

On Monday, the 51-year-old journalist wrote: "Merry Mon. Hope u had great weekend. Grateful for friends/fam visited me at hosp. Playing fun songs in isolation: Can't Touch that. Others?"

Roberts, who endured difficult chemotherapy treatments to prepare her body to accept the new bone marrow, is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a month so physicians can monitor her for complications and regulate her immune system as her system accepts the new cells.

And by the sound of her last tweet, the good news is the morning show anchor is in good spirits, has her playlist, and looks to be prepared for the long haul.

"Oct 1, Rabbitt, Rabbitt! Thanks for great song ideas for isolation. I'm doing well, receiving excellent care. Now we wait..and pray. Bless U," Roberts tweeted.

Get well soon, Robin!
