During GENERAL HOSPITAL’s three-week hiatus, many of the stars are enjoying vacations all over the world. Heck, Hayley Erin (Kiki) even got engaged while in Hawaii! But unfortunately, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) had to spend some of her time off at the doctor! At least she looks like she’s keeping her spirits up in the photo she shared…
“Who goes on vacation and gets a double ear infection and pneumonia?” she posted on Instagram. “This girl! This picture was taken right after my chest X-ray and right before the most painful shots I’ve ever had in my life.”
Fernandez declared that she was super happy with her terrific urgent care doctor and looked forward to being able to enjoy at least some of her time away from work. “I’m hoping the medicine kicks in and I can enjoy the last few days of my vacation,” she shared. “Until then, it’s rest, rest, rest!”
Thankfully just a few days later, the pint-sized actress shared the good news with her fans that she was already on the mend with a cheerful photo of her having a big glass of orange juice and a big slice of bread at a cafe! “Thank you so much to everyone for all your sweet messages, well wishes and prayers,” she posted. “We made it back home and I’m feeling better every day. Back to the doctor tomorrow! I’m hoping I can make it to some of my gymnastics camp this week. A big thank you to the great doctors in Texas!”
Just last week, Fernandez revealed that she was feeling under the weather and wondered if it was a thing for her at this time of year, sharing an adorable photo of her as a little girl with a cold compress on her forehead from exactly five years ago!
Fernandez joined the cast of GH back in October of 2016 after starting her show biz career as an infant. Little Charlotte immediately became the central figure in a tug of war between Valentin and Lulu as they fought for custody of their daughter, giving the talented young star plenty of opportunity to charm the soap’s fans with her winning performances!
We're glad Fernandez is on the mend so she'll be able to come back to work when GH resumes production and we can see what happens next with Charlotte, Valentin, and the rest of her family!
