(why would a 42 year old have organs randomly shutting down? maybe the story Jay Mohr told on Opie and Anthony about him and Tracy doing PCP is related in some way)
Tracy Morgan has had diabetes since 1996 but, and this is gonna amaze you, but he says he didn't really take it seriously or take care of himself until 2006 when he got sick and almost had his foot amputated. But since then he's turned things around and things are going great.
Oh wait never mind no they're not.
Tracy Morgan had a kidney transplant and will miss at least two episodes of the NBC sitcom. Morgan had successful surgery "on or around Dec. 10," and the show's writers will work his absence into the show by saying he had "some sort of meltdown because of a good thing that's happened to him." Morgan, who plays Tracy Jordan on "30 Rock," could miss up to three episodes, depending of his recovery, with his missed episodes slated to air in March.
You can't help but be impressed by NBC's obvious concern. About their TV show at least. Not so much for their employee. "We need to stop casting, you know, those people. They're always getting diabetes, I think they like it," NBC probably said.
