Robin Roberts Reunites With Her Dog After Bone Marrow Transplant

Just in time to ring in 2013, Good Morning America host Robin Roberts finally got to hug her Jack Russell Terrier K.J. 

“Look who made it back for my 100 day celebration … KJ!! We just keep staring at each … can't believe she's finally home,” the anchor tweeted on Dec. 29.

Roberts underwent a bone marrow transplant in September to treat MDS, a rare bone marrow disorder. To protect her weakened immune system, Roberts sent K.J. to live with friends, reports USA Today.

The anchor celebrated the 100 days since her transplant because it marks a major milestone in her recovery process.

"We have to watch patients super closely for 100 days. We don't trust anything for the first 100 days. After that, we're happy," Dr. Gail Roboz, the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center oncologist who is treating Roberts told Good Morning America.

We’re so glad Roberts and K.J. are back together again and wish them both a happy new year.
