A day after "Good Morning America"co-host Robin Roberts left mid-show to go on an unexpected medical break, she tweeted fans to let them know things were on the upswing.

"Feeling MUCH better," she wrote Wednesday. "Thanks for all the prayers & well wishes..same to you. Never appreciated vacation more. XO."

On Tuesday, Roberts, who underwent surgery to remove breast cancer in 2007, announced that she was planning to leave in the middle of the show because she wasn't feeling well.

"Well, a full disclosure here, I'm not feeling too well," Roberts said. "In fact I’m going to leave and let you all do the rest of the program on your own. I’m going to take a little time off, just to get some vacay … ."

Roberts had planned to go on medical leave sometime in August in order to have a bone marrow transplant to combat MDS, a blood and bone marrow disorder she was diagnosed with in June.

On the program, Roberts mentioned several fill-in co-hosts who will appear during her leave alongside George Stephanopoulos. Among them are Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Kelly Ripa and the co-hosts of "The View."

On Thursday, "View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg voiced her support of Roberts on Twitter, writing, "I miss u in the mornin ur doing what needs to be done I know but still miss u. & Please give ur mom a big hug 4 me."
