    At last weekend's "General Hospital" Fan Club event, Kelly Monaco (Sam) reportedly confirmed that Kirsten Storms was on her way back.

    According to Soaps In Depth, Storms is already back at work and should be appearing again in late August. Her sub, Jen Lilley released this farewell to her fans.

    Original article: June 22.

    Ever since Kirsten Storms (Maxie) left "General Hospital" to go on medical leave last September, rumors have been swirling about when she might return. Soap Opera Digest is now reporting that the actress is in talks to return to the show. Originally, she was meant to return in January but was unable to do so.

    Jen Lilley has been playing the role of Maxie since she left.

    What is going to happen with the "new Maxie"? Give here a new role like they did with Sarah Brown?

    Well it's about time. I love her character. It is so good to hear she is doing well regarding her health. Bring her on like yesterday. I've missed you too Kirsten. Oh and please get rid of that Heather. Anna wake up and smell the coffee. You are a poor excuse of PCPD head honcho. Poor Luke, how does he go to relieve himself. Anyway, I just want to see Maxi in action. Make her be with Spinelli.

    Just heard the news this weekend. I'm actually not that fond of the Maxie charactor but do like Kristen Storm. Maybe they will change her into a better person. Please don't put her back with Spinelli though.

    Dry out? That's harsh. She actually had a physical ailment that prevented her from working.

    Have watched GH since its premier in 63/64. Love the show. Have loved the characters they have brought in over the years. Maxie has become a staple on the show. I like the way Ms. Storms portrays the character. While Ms. Lilly has done an outstanding job filling in, I have grown to love and accept Kristen as the one and only Maxie. I have grown to like Ms. Lilly as an actress and sincerely hope they give her a role on the show. The writers can do anything they want to. She would be a gret NEW character to write in coming to Port Chuck and giving Maxie a run for her money over Spinelli. Great twist Huh?
