'B Positive' has had a rough first season, with several breaks, repeats and reruns sprinkled through its run so far. After a single episode winter premiere on January 21 with 'Open Heart Surgery', 'B Positive' is taking yet another break and will return with a new episode on February 11.

Its time slot on January 28 is taken up by a two-part 'Young Sheldon' episode, which will be followed up by the next episode of 'Mom', leaving no room for 'B Positive' on the CBS Thursday night comedy line-up.

The following week, on February 4, will see yet another repeat of one of the show's earlier episodes — specifically, the third episode, 'Foreign Bodies', where Drew (Thomas Middleditch) opens his home to Gina (Annaleigh Ashford) and has to learn how to live with someone who leads such an eccentric personal life.

On the last episode of 'B Positive', Drew helped Gina through a particularly difficult time in her life when she has a mental breakdown hours before a psych evaulation. Drew learned that Gina was once engaged to be married to someone, but left him when the fear of committment grew too strong, a painful memory that rose to the surface when she found out that her ex was getting married to someone new. It was a hard time for Gina, and in the end, helped Drew and Gina grow closer together.

Drew's life has undergone a lot of changes since he found out about his kidney failure, however, and in the next episode, Drew will attempt to wrestle with that. After missing out on his daughter's soccer game due to a very necessary dialysis appointment, Drew begins to wonder if it's all worth it. Gina's madcap ways, his dialysis, the stress, the costs, and the upcoming surgery are all things that Drew has had to deal with - and it's starting to look like it's a bit too much for him to bear.

The synopsis for the season's seventh episode, entitled 'Phantom Limb', reads, "After missing Maddie's soccer game due to dialysis, a depressed Drew begins to question if all his sacrifices are worth it." This episode of 'B Positive' airs on February 11 at 8.30 pm on CBS.
