More: General Hospital’s Carolyn Hennesy Has Some Great Advice for Jennifer Lopez
Storms has not addressed her health issues, but she did take a break from the show and from social media. The producers sent her character, Maxie, off to Portland to pursue a job offer and visit her daughter Georgie.
The good news is that Storms popped up on social media this weekend to thank everyone for the birthday wishes, and she shared a photo on Instagram. While she didn’t have much to say in her caption, Storms looked beautiful and less angular than her last General Hospital appearance.
Thanks for all of the birthday wishes Tweeters! 💕

Fans swarmed her comments feed with warm wishes about how much she was missed and how lovely she looked. They were happy she was making her health a priority — whether it was tied to her recent divorce from Brandon Barash or an ongoing physical issue, GH fans shared their support.
While spoilers so far do not reveal a return of Maxie to Port Charles just yet, Storms posting to social media definitely sparks speculation that a return to work might be in order soon. Producers made a clear decision not to recast her role, so fans are hoping to see her back on their television screens soon.
No matter what the issue is, Storms will make the best decision for herself and her family on whether it needs to be addressed. A happy and healthy woman is what GH fans want to see and a return to the show would be welcome when she’s ready.
