"Is a kidney like a heart, do you need it to live?"
Since the pilot episode, Susan has been the clown of the bunch. Things changed drastically this week when Susan learned that the doctors had to remove one of her kidneys as it had ruptured and that her remaining kidney is only operating at about 5 percent. This storyline is heartbreaking and Teri Hatcher displayed great acting skills as she was convincing in ever single scene, especially the last one where she asked the other housewives if they would help Mike take care of MJ if anything happened to her.
Mike will more than likely have to quit his gig in Alaska to take care of Susan while she undergoes dialysis. The Delfinos will have to go through rather difficult times due to Susan health issues, the fact that she will more than likely not be able to return to work at the school for a while, and the fact that they are still having financial problems. They will need their family and friends more than ever.
Below is the Food fight scene from Episode 11 - just for laughs......
