We have some good news to pass along about our colleague, NY1 anchor Roma Torre.
Roma is now home from the hospital as she continues to recover from colon cancer surgery.
She emailed this picture just hours after her operation Thursday, and says the surgery went off without a hitch.
Roma was diagnosed with colon cancer in July and went public with her illness to encourage people to get colonoscopies.
Roma's doctors say she needs about four to six weeks' recovery time.

Roma Torre
Roma Torre was born just in time to see her mother hauled off to jail.
...
From such dramatic roots, Roma grew up wanting to be an actress. Born in New York City, she grew up in Pittsburgh and later graduated with a degree in English and history from Tufts University.
...
After performing in numerous soaps and off-Broadway productions, Roma traded in the stage lights for the glare of television news cameras.
She began her television career at Channel 2 News, moving up to writing and producing. Then in 1986, when Cablevision announced the formation of the country's first 24-hour local news station, News12 Long Island, Roma was among the first reporters hired.
Roma stayed at News12 for five years, reporting, anchoring and hosting a weekly news program. In addition, she was the film and theater critic for News12, and her reviews were published in the television magazine "Total TV."
From Long Island, Roma headed back to New York City in 1992, where she now anchors NY1's "News All Day." Roma had been anchoring the much-earlier "News All Morning" but the need to sleep and the rigors of running a household with two young children prompted her to graduate to the kinder, gentler midday shift.
Prior to that Roma anchored the award-winning "Inside City Hall," a hard-hitting political and public affairs program described by one critic as "the 60 Minutes of local television."
Roma's theater years are still being put to good use in her role as NY1's Theater Critic. She regularly contributes to NY1's weekly theatre show, "NY1 On Stage," and each year hosts the newschannel's red carpet coverage outside the Tony Awards.
In addition, Roma continues to cover news stories and special events, including NY1's election night coverage, major ticket-tape parades, and whatever else is thrown in her direction.
Roma has won more than 25 broadcasting awards, including an Emmy for reporting and anchoring the Avianca plane crash disaster in 1991. In 1993, she and "News All Evening" anchor Lewis Dodley were honored by New York Magazine's "Best Of" edition as the best news anchors in New York.
In 2003 she was the recipient of the Newswomen's Club of New York's 2003 Peggy Award for Broadcasting, for her review of the Broadway show "Big River."

There's happy news for the entire NY1 family: anchor Roma Torre is recovering well from colon surgery.
Roma emailed the picture above just hours after the operation.
She said the surgery went off without a hitch and that the doctor actually removed less of her colon than he expected.
Roma was diagnosed with colon cancer in July.
She went public with her illness earlier this week to encourage as many people as possible to get colonoscopies.
Believe it or not, she's already asked her doctors when she can come back to work. They say it'll be about four to six weeks.

Health Reporter Erin Billups spoke to Roma about her condition and her message to NY1 viewers.
...
NY1's Roma Torre was diagnosed with colon cancer at the end of July, and since then she's had a CAT scan and an MRI to determine whether the cancer has spread past her colon â€" which, thankfully, it has not. Those of us who know Roma know her as a very private person, despite her work every day in the public eye. But she felt it was important to use her experience to educate others.
"I have no family history, I work out every day, I eat really good foods that I know are colon friendly, and I wasn't feeling anything wrong â€" and it shocked the hell out of me," Roma says of the diagnosis.
...
"I did hit 50, years ago, and I kept putting it off," Roma says.
...
Ugh," Roma says. "Obviously we all think the worst when we're presented with such bad news, but I am very hopeful."
To this point Roma has kept her condition to herself, not wanting to be defined by the disease. But she says she's sharing her story now as a cautionary tale.
"I've been suffering so with the knowledge that I'm dealing with a potentially terminal illness, and what it's done to my family, too, has really been very stressful obviously," she says. "So if there's any good to come out of this diagnosis and this experience that I have been agonizing over, it's that I'm in a position to share my story with people and encourage as many people as I can to get that colonoscopy, get screened."
To prepare for her colonoscopy, Roma had to take off from work, prepping the day before by drinking laxatives and enduring a liquid-only diet. But she's glad she dealt with the slight inconvenience when she did.
...
Weiser says Roma is facing either stage two or three colon cancer, which will be revealed after surgery.
