Now that Laura Spencer seems to be on the road to recovery and Genie has committed to this month's screen time as well as a couple weeks during November sweeps, dare we hope that she will return to the show permanently? Genie can't confirm any such thing, but has gone on record to say that if that doesn't work out, she loves her month-long visits as she is doing now and did for last fall's sweeps.
In the meantime, she is set to tape the sequel to last year's holiday movie, "The Note" for The Hallmark Channel. The movie will come out in June of 2009 and taping starts as soon as her current stint on GH wraps up. Her husband Jonathan is currently working a TNT series called "Leverage".
Soaps.com wishes the Francis/Frakes family the best of luck during this transitional period. Needless to say, we hope the adjustment goes very well!
