Victor recovered from it in time to fool her that he had fallen, then left to continue his spiritual journey, unaware that his family at home was in crisis.
In May 2007, while Victor was mourning the supposed death of this son, Nick, Hope phoned Victor to let him know that their son, Victor, was missing and had been hanging out with a bad crowd.
In 2006, Victor was diagnosed with epilepsy, Nikki was informed, and he was given medication.
But he liked the effects of the mini seizures that made him feel uncharacteristically mellow and caring, so he quit taking his medication.
Victor became a kind and gentle man, content to live there as a farmhand, and growing closer to Hope.
The next day, Hope gave birth to Victor Adam Newman, Jr.
To Victor's disappointment, Hope decided to stay in Kansas and raise their son on her farm.
Vic was a stockbroker living in New York City, and his passion was business; he firmly believed in following one's passion.
Vic and Victor were devastated when Hope passed away only days later.
He shut off his cell phone and told the family he was going on a trip that landed him in Kansas at Hope's farm once again.
