Fox 7 anchor Rebecca Thomas returns to the air Wednesday night, just a couple weeks after she donated a kidney to her mother.

Initially, Thomas will only work part-time, anchoring the station’s 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

She’ll return to full-time status on Dec. 21, a Fox 7 spokesperson said, reappearing on the station’s 5 p.m. broadcast.

Thomas flew to California last month so doctors could remove one of her kidneys to give to her mother, who was on dialysis.

The surgery went well for both mom and daughter, according to Thomas’ posts on social media.
