Popular Good Morning America host has reached a turning point following a bone marrow transplant in her battle against the rare blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome: She just passed the 100-day milestone, the Daily News reports.

The 52-year-old, who tweeted continually about her countdown to day 100, is not slated to return to the anchor chair until May.
On Saturday, she posted a photo of herself in a Santa Claus cap wearing Angry Birds pajamas holding a calendar — and K.J. came home soon after.
“Look who made it back for my 100 day celebration…KJ!!,” Roberts wrote to her 417,379 followers on Twitter, posting a photo of the two together again. “We just keep staring at each (other)..can’t believe she’s finally home.
