Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is desperately trying to help his father. Mike Corbin (Max Gail) is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease which negatively effects memory, and the condition progressively worsens over time. About month or so ago, Sonny brought up a possible trial treatment to his wife Carly, (Laura Wright) along with other family members who ultimately shot the idea down. Something isn’t sitting right with Sonny as he isn’t completely convinced he should just let nature take it’s course. Sonny has had the feeling that if there is something out there that could possibly reverse the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s, he wouldn’t rule it out.
Mike has already gotten worse as he is having more and more episodes where he reverts back to the old days, thinks Sonny is a young boy again, and thinks that family members are old neighborhood friends and enemies.
General Hospital spoilers hint that Sonny will revisit the notion of giving the medical trial for Mike a try. Chances are he hasn’t hung up the idea just yet, and he may just go for it, despite what the rest of the family has advised.
Mike could face the natural progression of this debilitating disease, or, he could go through the trial as Sonny wishes. What will happen and what could go wrong? Oh so much…
