A warm gesture of Jimmy Kimmel to his son's surgeon
Parents always go an extra mile to provide the best they can to their children. Same was with Jimmy Kimmel who had his heart and soul put out in giving the best treatment to his son,Billy, who was suffering from some serious health issues. This 49 year old comedian even took a week off as his son's surgery was postponed. He even canceled his plans of watching the World Series live.
The guy who brings smile on everyone's face had a tough time smiling as his second child, Billy was suffering from serious health complications and that he had been prescribed a heart surgery. Newly born, he had already been surrounded by problems and that made Jimmy's heart ache. Jimmy and Molly McNearney had Billy in April. He was born with a serious heart problem which required immediate surgery.
A WEEK OFF
Jimmy had took a week off as his son's surgery had been postponed because the entire family was suffering from cold. “Officially, I was off because my son Billy was supposed to have his next heart surgery. But we had to postpone it because we all had colds,” Kimmel told the audience. “But the truth is, I was waiting in line for the new iPhone all week.” In Jimmy's absence, celebrity guests Shaquille O’Neal, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum and Dave Grohl took over hosting duties.
Billy had his first surgery immediately after he was born. His first surgery was successful. He was diagnosed with a blocked pulmonary valve and a hole in the heart wall. He had his other surgery which was also successful. Jimmy shared a picture of Billy to his Instagram with the caption: “Young Billy is six months old today. He is healthy and happy and we are all very grateful for your prayers, good wishes, thoughts, and support of @ChildrensLA and children’s hospitals in your area.”
A SMALL GESTURE
Jimmy Kimmel was in headlines for one more thing related to Billy and his surgery. Jimmy had decided he would to go the see the World Series and had his tickets booked. But as soon as his son came out fine, he thought that someone else deserved going there and that was Billy's heart surgeon. He decided that he would gift his tickets to the World Series to Dr. Vaughn A. Starnes M.D. who treated Billy. Though a very expensive gifts, Jimmy knew he could gift nothing better than this. Now that was a Jimmy Kimmel thing. Blessings and love to Billy.
