There was one year when I was on "Community" in which I ended up having my colon removed. I was in and out of hospitals for months. Everyone was super supportive and understanding. But it was nice for me knowing that while I wasn’t there, we as a team still had a presence. I still knew what was going on and Annie was still able to come to the plate for us.
