Roberts, who is a national correspondent at ABC News, posted an image of a sunset on Tuesday and titled it: “So long February.”
The 62-year-old followed the image on her Instagram story with a photo of flowers.
She captioned it: “Saying hello march… with this pop of color from my sister’s orchid garden!”
In the video filmed outside, she acknowledged to her followers that she “has a frog in her throat” and felt under the weather.
“Sometimes your body says ‘Enough. It’s time to take a break, recharge, renew’ and I think my body is screaming that right now,” she said.
Deborah added: “So I am going to do just that. I’m going to take a little breather, take a couple of days and try to refresh and recharge.
“Going to sign off social media and just do a little focus on me…I’ll see ya when I see ya.”
She told fans that she will still see them all next week on ABC.
Al was hospitalized over the holidays with blood clots in his legs and lungs and internal bleeding which saw him lose “half his blood.”
This followed a battle with Covid in September.
Deborah said how she feared her husband would not make it to Christmas and how she and the family “were losing hope… we did really think we were going to lose him.”
Al underwent a seven-hour surgery and his wife described the harrowing experience as “the worst roller coaster ride you have ever been on.”
