Months after revealing his newborn son's diagnosis with a serious heart condition, Jimmy Kimmel says that little Billy is "doing great."

"Please remind your Congresspeople that every kid deserves the care he got." Billy is 3 months old & doing great. Thx for the love & support. Please remind your Congresspeople that every kid deserves the care he got pic.twitter.com/XcvvM6XFJ3 — Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) July 21, 2017 The update comes after Kimmel dedicated a Jimmy Kimmel Live monologue to Billy in May, shortly after the child was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary artesia and underwent open-heart surgery. "In layman's terms," Kimmel said at the time, "the pulmonary valve was completely blocked." He also called for Congress to prioritize care for people who have pre-existing conditions — even if those patients don't have the financial means to pay for care themselves. "If your baby is about to die, it shouldn't matter how much money you make," Kimmel said. "This isn't football. There are no teams. We are the team — it's the United States. Don't let their partisan squabbles divide us." WATCH: Coating yourself in fish scales could be the answer to burn recovery

After a male was shocked to learn that one woman in his office had cramps, he felt the need to share the "disturbing" news with his human resources department.

It was only after surgeons removed the mass during what was supposed to be a routine cataract surgery that the doctors realized it was actually a bunch of contact lenses that had gotten lost in her eye. Because she was 67-years-old at the time, the woman just thought that her eye discomfort and dryness was due to old age.
