Carly Corinthos Jacks is selfish, self-absorbed, irritating and just plain annoying.
I don’t see eye-to-eye about much of anything with General Hospital‘s biggest Diva.
But there is one very important thing to her credit.
She is fiercely loyal to her children and she’ll fight for them against all odds.
That has become clearly apparent over the past couple of weeks – when her son, Michael, lies comatose from a bullet to his brain.
And Carly (Laura Wright) is the only one who believes Michael (Dylan Cash) will come out of it – and back to his normal life.
This despite the fact that the doctors say he will remain in a coma.
They say there’s nothing more they can do.
Carly refuses to accept this.
She keeps telling Michael to come back to her.
Everyone else, including husband Jax, BFF Jason and ex-husband Sonny, are resigned to what they believe is the harsh reality.
But not Carly.
And if it were me, I wouldn’t give up hope either.
You can’t, really.
Not if you really love someone.
And not if it’s your child.
There are medical miracles every day.
How about the woman, just last week, who was shot between the eyes with a 44-caliber bullet?
She never lost consiousness and walked away, virtually unscathed with just stitches.
There are documented cases where people have emerged from comas after several years – in one case 19 years.
So, Carly, I’m with you all the way on this one.

    Carly’s dedication to her children is one of very few attributes she possesses.
    I am also liking that she’s realizing how her past self-serving actions contributed to who Michael is today, & really were not in his best interests as she had convinced herself & anyone else who’d listen over the years.
    Will be interesting to see how she raises Morgan & what influences she allows in his life from here on out.

    I also liked the fact that Carly actually admitted to her past mistakes and I was shocked that she took the blame for what happened to Michael. I don’t ever remember Carly owning up to her own blame in something before. She usually is quick to point the finger at others.
