GH Spoilers: John J. York’s Health Status
According to the General Hospital spoilers, John J. York shared the latest update on his cancer journey. He admitted that he has “a long road ahead” of him. The 65-year-old first shared in September that he has two blood and bone marrow disorder diagnoses. He took to social media to share an update with his fans.
“Hey there, everyone. It’s me and I’m checking in,” York shared. “I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, ‘Why did Mac shave his beard?’ I didn’t shave my beard. I actually shaved the little bits of hair that were still left there. Everything’s going along very well.”
The GH star shared that he’s in the “middle stages” of his cancer journey. He also stated that he has “a long road ahead.” Regardless, York is remaining in good spirits during this time. He also revealed whether he will return to the show.
“The test results are looking good… I’m feeling good,” York continued. “Hopefully, hopefully, if things go the way they are, maybe [I’ll] be back on the show late spring, early summer.”
In his message, York thanked the General Hospital fans for their love, prayers, and support during this time. He concluded his message with a holiday greeting. York also rubbed his bald head as he joked that it would bring some good luck.
General Hospital Spoilers: Will Mac Scorpio Get Recast?
The General Hospital spoilers suggest that his character could get recast. This theory was brought up days after his holiday message. The user Mark1965 posted on the SoapCentral.com Message Boards: “Has anyone heard if John J. York will be temporarily recast? From his social media updates it sounds like he will not be back until early summer.”
GH fans took to the thread to react. One user noted: “From what I understand the show will not recast the role of Mac until John is ready to return. There was a passing reference over the holidays from Felicia that Mac was in South America looking into something.”
Other fans don’t want another recast. They’re already fed up with the recent recasts that took over the daytime soap. Fans are ready to welcome back York when he’s healthy and ready.
