Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Lucas Horton (Bryan Datillo) and Will Horton (Chandler Massey) will say a tearful farewell to Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) as she has been declared brain dead. Lucas has to make a tough decision to take her off life support so he can donate her heart to Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes)/
Days of Our Lives viewers will recall that Vivian Alamain (Robin Strasser) thought she finished the job of killing Kate when she shot her into a freshly dug grave a couple of weeks ago and buried her. But she was shocked to find out Kate had clawed herself out the grave and was in surgery.
She disguised herself as a surgeon and waited till Kate was in recovery after surgery and squeezed her oxygen tubes tightly in her hands, blocking off Kate’s flow of oxygen, and Kate went into a coma. She must have been without oxygen to her brain long enough for neurological activity to cease, the medical term for “brain dead” meaning her brain would cease to run her body and it’s organs and systems without life support.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – Julie Williams Desperately Needs A New Heart
At the same time, Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) is also in Salem University Hospital in desperate need of a heart transplant, and too old to be on the traditional transplant list. The only way Julie can get a heart is if someone specifically donates one to her, and even then, they have to be a donor match.
While Kate and Julie are not related and wouldn’t have to be a match, Lucas is related to both women. Kate is his mother and Julie is his first cousin, since his father, Bill Horton (John Martin) was Julie’s uncle.
Lucas calls her “Grandma Julie” sometimes, as most of the family do in spite of her being his cousin because she is so much older than he is. Will has called her “Grandma Julie” also even though technically she’s his first cousin once removed.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – Taking His Mother Off Life Support Tough
Agreeing to take his mother off life support will be a tough decision for Lucas, but letting his cousin Julie die without a heart transplant is a tough decision too. If there is no medical hope given to him that Kate will never regain brain function and be on life support the rest of her life, and she did not write up a DNR, or Do Not Resuscitate order, then it is up to her closest relative, Lucas, to make the decision.

His half-brother, Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) recently moved out of Salem, but Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) did send him a text to call her so she could tell him about Kate. But if Lucas and Rex decide together to take Kate off life support then it will be done off-screen but there will be a mention. But knowing Julie will live if he donates Kate’s heart to her will be small comfort.
