Thompson reflected in an Instagram posting on Saturday.
"Yesterday morning. Nov 20th. 5:55 am. It was my birthday and also my last day of playing Patrick Drake on GH after 10 years, "Thompson wrote. "It was a long, emotional, exhausting, thrilling at times overwhelming day, and I am so grateful for every one of those moments. Change can be exciting and scary all at once. Shake it up..see what comes out. Thank you for the Birthday wishes. Thank you for the well wishes. See you soon."
Are you ready to say goodbye to Thompson and Dr. Patrick Drake? Will GH be the same without him? I'm not sure if GH could have done anything to keep him, but his departure will be a big loss to the show.
