Sarah Hyland had a kidney transplant

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland revealed on Good Morning America earlier today that she had a kidney transplant last month. The 21-year-old actress was diagnosed with abnormal kidney development at the age of 9, and his suffered from a lifetime of pain and fatigue since. The San Francisco Chronicle says:
...as her health grew worse, she began seeking an organ donor. Her father, actor Edward James Hyland, was a match. She says she tells her dad, "It's weird — I've got your kidney in me."

Hyland plans to spend the show's summer hiatus recovering from her surgery.
So I'm assuming this disease leaves Sarah unable to drink alcohol, right? No way her kidneys could handle it. Bummer. If Lindsay Lohan had been diagnosed with this disease as a kid, she'd probably have five Oscar nominations by now instead of five pregnancy scares.
