“The operation was a success,” Kimmel said, describing it as the longest three hours of his life.
Kimmel said his son would likely need two more surgeries over the course of his life for the condition, but that he would be OK. The presenter cried as he read a list of nurses, doctors, and others who had helped save his son.
Thankfully he’s now home with his family, but Jimmy took the time tothank the care team and also slam Trump’s health care agenda.
He pleaded with politicians on both sides to make sure that all Americans have access to health care, especially those with pre-existing conditions including his son.
If your baby is going to die, and it doesnt have to, it should not matter how much money you make, Kimmel said, while holding back more tears. I saw a lot of families there. And no parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their childs life. It just shouldnt happen. Not here.
We send recovery wishes to little Billy and his family!
