Robin Roberts suffered complications from her bone-marrow transplant requiring hospitalization last week.

The 52-year-old "Good Morning America" anchor fell ill last week, but told fans on Facebook that she'll be OK.

"Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather," she wrote. "I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off 'opportunistic infections.'"

My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon," she added. "It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe."

Roberts wrote she's "feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week," adding, "I'll be back on GMA next week ... as my sweet mama would say: 'Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!'"

So ... she lives by a creek?

Roberts also sent well-wishes to the city of Boston, writing, "We stand by you now and always."
