VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel Returns with Baby Billy After Heart Surgery
Jimmy Kimmel's baby Billy had his second OPEN HEART surgery last week so the late show host had guest hosts fill in for him while he was out. Thankfully the surgery was a success and Kimmel returned to the show last night with Billy in tow to show everyone how well he is doing. Watch the video below!
The host gave thanks to the bright and talented doctors and nurses at Children's Hospital LA. Billy will have to have one more surgery when he is around six years old and then he is good to go. However, the fight is not over for millions of children whose health is threatened right now because a program called CHIP (Children's Health Insurance Program), that is there to protect them, is in serious need of funding because Congress recently failed to approve funding for it.
Kimmel told his audience that this is not a partisan issue. Democrats and Republicans have always overwhelmingly supported it - until now. Now it's being used as a bargaining chip. So Jimmy is encouraging everyone to call the House and Senate at (202) 225-3121 to tell them to take a break from tax cuts and fully fund CHIP now. Also, if you don't have health insurance make sure to go to healthcare.gov and sign up before the December 15th deadline. #FundCHIPNow
