General Hospital Spoilers: Baby Liam’s Fate
Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) had an almost idyllic pregnancy, but the story couldn’t stay idyllic as Sasha’s labor resulted in a placental abruption the doctors didn’t notice in time, resulting in a C-section that was performed too late and a baby boy deprived of oxygen in the womb. Sasha and Brando (Johnny Wactor) hoped beyond hope that the treatment to reduce the baby’s brain swelling would work, but Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) has to inform the parents it’s not meant to be. Their baby has no brain function.
Britt explains that Liam could live for several years on a ventilator but he will never have a real chance at life. They need to decide whether to let the baby go or not. Brando thinks it’s best to let their son die peacefully but Sasha is distraught and not sure what to do. They are going to need all the help they can get from their family and friends to have the strength to do what is right for their son.
Brad’s Good Fortune, Peter’s Bad Fortune?

Meanwhile, it’s also time for Brad’s long-awaited parole hearing. Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) put in an appearance, but will the parole board let Brad free anyway? It’s just what Selina Wu (Lydia Cook) wanted Sonny to arrange if she arranged Peter’s death.
