  • Jimmy Kimmel shares Touching Story regarding His Newly Born Son’s Heart Surgery
 

Jimmy Kimmel, the media personality, shared a touching and tear-jerking story regarding his newly born son’s heart surgery with his audience recently on his show. He also tweeted messages that shared the harrowing process he and his wife had to go through as they prayed every single second of the operation for their son’s well-being.

It was just a day after his newborn son’s heart surgery that Jimmy Kimmel tweeted a picture of him with the message that he was doing very well. Jimmy tweets a picture of his wife along with his daughter and son Billy shows his daughter listening to the baby’s heart with a toy stethoscope.  

Jimmy Kimmel had revealed that his son had emergency heart surgery about three days after he was born. He had a fault in his heart. The operation was a success.

However, Jimmy said that his son will be needing another operation after three to six months. Kimmel requested viewers to donate to the hospital where his son’s surgery had taken place.

He also urged Democrats and Republicans to bring forth legislation regarding free medical care in America. Former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were two personalities who in particular answered Kimmel’s tweets.  

The monologue that Kimmel delivered live on his show was in many ways both a political and a personal message. Kimmel got quite emotional and nearly burst into tears on several occasions during the course of the monologue.

He said that three hours after the birth of his baby boy, the nurse noticed that Billy was going purple in the face. Soon a number of doctors and nurses were inside the room. Kimmel got worried sick and his wife who was still in the delivery room didn’t know anything about all this. 

Kimmel was informed that his son was born with a defect in his heart and that he would require an operation. Three days later the operation took place and it was a success.

Kimmel mentioned in passing that President Trump had proposed a $6 billion cut in the medical insurance budget and it was a good thing that the majority of congressmen didn’t go along with that.

Kimmel praised Obamacare for the benefits it had brought to the common man or woman on the streets. Kimmel made a request that partisan politics ought to be left behind since there was only one America and all who lived in it were Americans.

Let us forget our petty squabbles and start building a land of hope for everyone who had made the dream possible. Meawhile, on Twitter there were three tweets regarding Kimmel’s son and the predicament he was in.

The first one said that he and his wife welcomed the baby into their lives. The second one thanked well-wishers for their prayers and donations to the hospital.

The third one showed his daughter placing a toy stethoscope on her baby brother’s heart after he had survived the operation and was back home safe and sound.
