    2 MONTHS?!?!? Wow Feel better Kirsten.

    The recast looks way older than Maxi kind of in her mid-30's to early 40's. She looks the age of Felicia Maxi's mom.

    I hope Kirsten gets better. My prayers are with her and her family.

    Prayers and good wishes to Kirsten Storms - I dont think anyone can play her character as well as she does..but appreciate that its been recast so her storyline continues to move forward. The actress who takes over the role has big shoes to fill.

    Endometriosis is extremely painful. I hope Kirsten is not suffering. My prayers go out to her.
