On Feb. 27, daytime veteran Scott Reeves (ex-Steve, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Ryan, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) was hospitalized with a heart condition. His former GH castmate and Port Chuck bandmate Steve Burton (ex-Dylan, Y&R; ex-Jason, GH) broke the news in a video on Twitter.

“I hate to even have to shoot this video,” Burton said sadly to their fans. “But I just wanted to share with you that we’re going to have to reschedule and postpone the Port Chuck dates because Scott has been hospitalized.
“He came to pick me up this morning and said he had a little pain below his sternum for the last day,” he continued. “I could tell that he was really, really uncomfortable. He wanted to fly to L.A. and go to the emergency room in L.A., and I could tell he was in a lot of pain, so I said, ‘No, we’re gonna go to the emergency room right now.’”
Reeves, who was most recently seen as Noel on NASHVILLE, was admitted to the hospital and evaluated. “From that they can tell, he has a minor heart condition,” Burton reported. “So please pray for him. His family would appreciate that.”

Reeves’ friends and former castmates shared their love on Twitter with bandmate Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny, GH) asking fans to “keep Scott in your thoughts and prayers.” And Lisa LoCicero (Olivia, GH) declared, “If anyone can beat this, you can, my friend! Biggest heart I’ve ever met!”
The last update on Reeves’ condition came from Burton early Monday evening. “Scott is doing okay,” he reported. “He thanks you all for the prayers and support. More tests tomorrow. I’ll let you know.”
Scott will have his wife, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) by his side to help him through this difficult time, and as you can see in the gallery below, their love is strong enough to beat anything!
