The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Monday, August 3 reveal that Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) condition is far more serious than she wants anyone to know. Dr. Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) will prepare her for what lies ahead, but it appears as if her only objective is to see Kelly Spencer (Colette and Avalon Gray), per She Knows Soaps.
A Long Recovery Period
Steffy woke up and found that she experienced a lot of pain if she tried to breathe deeply. Dr. Finnegan suspected that she had broken ribs and ordered more x-rays. He also put some medication in her IV to ease her discomfort.
The soap opera spoilers state that the physician will give her some information about her injuries. She will be devastated to learn that they are so severe that it will take weeks for them to heal. He will also tell Steffy that if she needs some pain medication to let the hospital staff know.
However, the Forrester Creations’ co-CEO will refuse to be in the hospital for such a long time as she has a toddler waiting for her at home. While Steffy may insist that she’s alright and that she can visit the hospital daily, the seriousness of Steffy’s condition will force him to approach her loved ones about his concerns.
Dr. Finnegan Shows Concern
The doctor will tell Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) that his daughter is experiencing a lot of pain but is refusing the medication to alleviate her suffering. He is convinced that Steffy is trying to power through without any drugs, per Soap Opera News. He is concerned that she is putting too much pressure on herself.
Ridge will also be worried and may try to speak to his daughter about her aversion to using the drugs. But Steffy is stubborn and has only one goal in mind.
Avoidance & Denial
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Ridge and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) will go in to see Steffy. She will put on a brave face and pretend that she’s doing well.
However, Ridge will know what she’s going through and ask her about her level of discomfort. Steffy will stubbornly refuse to talk about her agony and will change the topic. She will ask about her daughter since she last left her with Amelia (Nicola Posener). Liam may assure her that Kelly is safe and ease her worries.
Steffy just wants to go home to Kelly because she’s a single mother. She will pretend that everything is okay even if she’s far from ready to go home.
