>> thanks for >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, dr. mehmet oz, olympic gold medalist shaun white, and music from kings of leon. and now, thank goodness, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you for watching. [ cheers and applause ] i appreciate that. welcome to the show. i have -- that's very nice. i have a story to tell about something that happened to our family last week. i'm sorry.
you know, i try not to get emotional, but it was a scary story. and before i go into it, i want you to know it has a happy ending. okay? so when i'm telling this, don't get too upset. leave that to me. but a little over a week ago on friday april 21st my wife, molly, gave birth to a boy. a baby boy. his name is william john kimmel. [ cheers and applause ] thank you very much. we call him billy. it was an easy delivery. six pushes, he was out. and he appeared to be a normal healthy baby. until about three hours after he was born. we were out of the delivery room. we moved to the recovery room. our whole family was there. and we introduced him to his 2 1/2-year-old sister. she was cute with him. we were happy. everything was good. my wife was in bed relaxing. and when a very attentive nurse at cedars-sinai hospital. her name is nanush. was checking him out and heard a murmur in his heart, which is
common with newborn babies, but she also noticed he was a bit purple, which is not common. so she asked me to come with her. and my wife and i assumed it would be nothing. our daughter had a heart murmur too. we didn't notice that he wasn't the color he was supposed to be. so i accompanied billy and the nurse, went down the hall to another part of the hospital. the neonatal icu where another excellent nurse named ann checked him out and called the doctor. and now all of a sudden it felt serious. and the room started to fill up. more doctors and nurses and equipment started coming in. and they determined he wasn't getting enough oxygen into his blood, which as far as i understand -- or understood at the time was most likely one of two things, either his heart or his lungs. and you hope it's the lungs because sometimes they have fluid in them after delivery and it's potentially a minor thing. but they did an x-ray and his lungs were fine, which meant his heart wasn't. so now more doctors and nurses and he quit -- it's a terrifying thing. you know, my wife is back in the recovery room.
she has no idea what's going on. and i'm standing in the middle of a lot of very worried-looking people, kind of like right now. [ laughter ] who are trying to figure out what the problem is. it's friday night. and so they call a pediatric cardiologist, dr. evan zahn, who when they called him was picking his mother up from the airport. luckily, her plane was not delayed because he got to the hospital very quickly. they did an echocardiogram, which is a sonogram of the heart, and found that billy was born with a heart disease. something called tetralogy of fallot with pulmonary atresia. it's hard to explain. basically the pulmonary valve was completely blocked, and he has a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart. and then they brought my wife in and they wheeled her in and dr. zahn told her what was going on and what our options were, and we decided to take him to children's hospital, where
there's a world-renowned cardiac surgeon who is by all accounts a genius. his name is dr. vaughn starnes. so we put the baby in an ambulance to children's hospital los angeles. and on monday morning dr. starnes opened his chest and fixed one of the two defects in his heart. he went in there with a scalpel and did some kind of magic that i couldn't even begin to explain. he opened the valve, and the operation was a success. it was the longest three hours of my life. [ cheers and applause ] they didn't do everything. he'll have to have another open heart surgery in three to six months to close those holes. but they want to wait until he's bigger, and then he'll have a third hopefully non-invasive procedure sometime maybe in his early teens to replace the valve he has now. so this poor kid, this is what he looked like on monday. but this is what he looked like yesterday. [ cheers and applause ] we brought him home.
poor kid. not only did he get a bad heart, he got my face. [ laughter ] six days after open heart surgery we got to bring him home, which is amazing. he's doing great. he's eating. he's sleeping. he peed on his mother today while she was changing his diaper. [ laughter ] [ applause ] he's doing all the things that he's supposed to do. and our daughter -- here's a picture of my wife and me and billy and our daughter jane. and you can see jane's pretty excited about having another kid in the house. [ laughter ] you know, it's funny. they tell you when you bring the new baby home bring a gift for the older sibling and tell her it's from the baby. as if we gave birth to the easter bunny or something. [ laughter ] it makes no sense. but that's what they tell you to do. so we brought jane these shopkins. do you know what these are? they're like tiny little cupcakes and donuts with faces on them. and we said billy bought these for you. and she believed it. she's not too bright. [ laughter ] i mean, he doesn't even have
money. not only -- [ laughter ] doesn't he have money. he doesn't have a place to put money. he has no wallet. how would he buy these for her? as far as she knows, the baby is signed up for amazon prime. [ laughter ] but she likes him okay. this is another picture. this is the best. there's me in a coma. [ laughter ] and i have a list of people i want to thank for making that happen. and i hope i have my list. these are just some of the people who played a part in this. it was an enormous team effort. really was. at cedars-sinai hospital first of all i want to thank nanush shakernia, the nurse who was the first to notice there was a problem. [ applause ] if it was a girl, we would have named her nanush. we really would have. [ laughter ] and the other nurses at cedars. desiree, laurie, ashley, theresa, susan, alexis. the head nurse in intensive care ann de mayo, who's great. nurse joan bacall, who was at his side the whole time. dr. evan zahn.
and also his mother, who probably didn't get her luggage because he picked her up at the airport. dr. scott cohen, dr. stacy rosenbaum, dr. tim casares. all for being so great. and the truly awe-inspiring team at children's hospital los angeles led by dr. vaughn starnes, who saves so many lives. [ cheers and applause ] this man has saved thousands of lives and turned so much sorrow into happiness. i'll never be able to thank him for -- so i won't even try. [ laughter ] and all the great doctors at chla. dr. sylvia del castillo. dr. erin abarbanel. barbara gross who runs the heart institute. and our unbelievably kind and caring nurses, especially krista callan and carrie dubin. but they were all so excellent. elise, janet, josie, rhea. dr. donald seaback, our respiratory therapist who kept billy breathing the whole time.
this is some place, children's hospital los angeles. i hope you never have to go there, but if you do you'll see so many kids from so many financial backgrounds being cared for so well and with so much compassion. i've been supporting children's hospital for years. i had no idea we'd ever wind up there. and if you'd like to support the work they do, the information is there at the bottom of your screen. please do. we were on the costco floor, which i consider to be a good omen because it's my favorite store. [ laughter ] [ applause ] and that's -- costco sponsors the second floor, which is great. and thanks to all the companies who support children's hospital, including my company, disney abc, which supports them financially. i want to thank everyone here at abc who were exceptionally kind and patient with me, letting me stay out of work last week. ben sherwood, channing dungy. rod mills. mitch cole. janet wintergrate. cara kennedy, bob and willow iger. especially thanks to everyone here at the show. all my co-workers who sent a box
of cards. that meant a lot to my wife. i didn't read them. [ laughter ] but they meant a lot to her. thanks to my work -- i want to thank my work family and my actual family, starting with my cousin dr. denise hayes, who happens to be a pediatric cardiologist in new york. there's one smart person in our family. [ laughter ] and she counseled us. she explained everything to everyone in our family over and over again so i didn't have to. thank you, denise. and special extra thanks to my mom and dad and my mother-in-law mickey. my kids, danny and kevin, my cousins, my sister, my brother, my sisters-in-law, my brothers-in-law. they all really came through in so many ways, as did my friends. every one of my friends were there 100% of the time for us. we had atheists praying for us. [ laughter ] okay? we had people who did not believe in god -- [ cheers and applause ] -- praying to him. and i hate being -- i hate
having to say it. even that son of a bitch matt damon sent flowers. [ cheers and applause ] so thank you. i want to say also thanks to guillermo for all the sweet texts and e-mails. i could barely read any of them. [ laughter ] but it was the thought that really counted. and cleto, i have to say cleto, cleto sr. cleto's mom sylvia, cleto sr.'s wife sylvia, who's like a second mother to me, never has any human being ever texted more praying hands emojis to another human being than cleto's mom did to me. i had to upgrade my phone just to handle them all. [ laughter ] so thank you, sylvia. and most of all i want to thank my wife, molly. first of all for allowing me to have sex with her in the first place. [ laughter ] that was huge right there. [ applause ] so few have done that. but also for being so strong and levelheaded and positive and
loving during the worst nightmare a new mother could experience. i couldn't ask for a better partner. i'm so happy we had this baby together. i'm definitely getting a vasectomy after this. [ laughter ] and i want to say one other thing. president trump last month proposed a $6 billion cut in funding to the national institute of health. and thank god our congressmen made a deal last night to not go along with that. they actually increased funding by $2 billion. and i applaud them for doing that. [ cheers and applause ] because more than 40% of the people who'd have been affected by those cuts in the national institutes of health are children, and it would have a major impact on a lot of great places including children's hospital in los angeles, which is so unbelievably sad to me. we were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world, but until
a few years ago millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. you know, before 2014 if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you'd never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. you were born with a pre-existing condition. and if your parents didn't have medical insurance you might not live long enough to even get denied because of a pre-existing condition. if your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. i think that's something that whether you're a republican or a democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? i mean, we do. [ cheers and applause ] whatever your party, whatever you believe, whoever you support, we need to make sure that the people who are supposed to represent us, people who are meeting about this right now in washington, understand that very clearly. let's stop with the nonsense. 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 on something every decent person wants. [ cheers and applause ] we need to take care of each other. i saw a lot of families there. and no parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child's life. it just shouldn't happen. not here. so anyway. thank you for listening. i promise i'm not going to cry for the rest of the show. [ laughter ] please say a prayer for or send positive thoughts to the families with children who are still in the hospital now. because they need it. and thanks. we have a special show tonight. we'll be right back with dr. oz.

kristen bell on thursday. and david spade on friday. and then i'm hoping to be back to work on monday. guillermo, i need you to watch these people while i'm gone. [ laughter ] >> sure. yes, sure, jimmy. >> jimmy: i don't want them stealing anything from my desk. >> i will keep my eyes open, yeah. >> jimmy: okay. thank you. especially spade. because i think he -- [ laughter ] >> yeah, i know. >> jimmy: our first guest tonight is a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon and more importantly one of oprah's favorite things. his show airs every day on syndicated television. please welcome dr. mehmet oz! [ cheers and applause ] thanks for coming. it's very strange because it might seem that we booked you specifically because of this. you've been booked on the show for weeks. this is a coincidence. and then you're a heart surgeon. >> the daytime emmy awards were last night.
i was coming here anyway. we talked about dates. today was the obvious one. this was planned months ago. >> jimmy: in a way you're responsible for what happened to us. [ laughter ] >> beside my wife. >> jimmy: do people forget that you're a real heart surgeon and that you still do operations? >> it slips their minds sometimes. but every thursday i'm dutifully in the operating room doing procedures. actually, i trained to do exactly the kind of operation that your son -- have you mentioned your son's name? >> jimmy: billy. >> in all the tears i couldn't quite -- billy. by the way, unbelievably emotional. and what you were just expressing there is why i practice medicine. there is something unique about the raw emotion, the authentic love that we have for each other, and we forget that sometimes. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's never more powerful than when parents have children in trouble. and pediatric cardiac surgery, it's like being a fighter pilot. you either make it or you don't. and you've got to get the plane off the aircraft carrier, and you've got to do it with the child and the parents. i know what dr. starnes, who's a superb, excellent surgeon, went through with you. >> jimmy: he had -- the way
people were speaking of this man before this operation, we almost felt like we were lucky to be in this situation. like oh, he is -- he is a god. i mean, he is an absolute miracle. and it turned out to be true. but it definitely filled us with a lot of confidence. but i wonder what it's like to be in that situation where you actually have saved people's lives. now, you've done a lot of heart surgeries. how do people thank you for something like that? >> well, first, if i can say something. if you take responsibility for saving life, then you have to take the blame for losing life. >> jimmy: i see. >> and it's really hard to live through that. so i'm very careful. i teach. i'm a professor at columbia. to make sure folks have a little bit of equanimity about this. you've got to keep your ego in check and you have to be confident enough. because surgery's ultimately controlled arrogance. we have to think we can open the chest a child with a heart the size of a peanut and then fix the insides of it. that does take a little arrogance. >> jimmy: well, sure. >> but it's the controlled part that's important. because when you overstep, you start doing crazy things. and people do express appreciation.
but i'm always quick to say that something that you did was as important as what i did. you had confidence in what was going on. you supported each other. the role of the family which you brought up the family here but the family at home as well. it's unparalleled in its vitality. and the nursing that you touched on a little bit, these women -- >> jimmy: absolutely. and men as well. >> and men. and there should be more men. my charge nurse at columbia, flora, flora wang, she was actually -- chiang kai-shek, who was the head of taiwan and had come to the united states in the '60s, his gift was to allow his charge nurse to stay with us. and this woman would look over my shoulder. she retired recently. if it wasn't completely dry after the surgery, because we use blood thinners, she wouldn't let me close the chest. otherwise you've got to go back and open it again and fix the problem. and it's that kind of leadership that nurses have given our nation. and that's why a lot of this works, especially in heart surgery, because it's a team sport. >> jimmy: and especially because the nurses are there and they're at the hospital every single day and some of the doctors will come in and go and the nurses really -- i mean, really, it is
amazing that this woman noticed that. you know, so many people told me you're very lucky she noticed that. >> well, let's talk about this. tetralogy of fallot was one of the conditions that really gave birth to heart surgery. it was discovered hundreds of years ago, probably 150 years ago. fallot, who was a french fellow, described it. but literally he only described it. because eldest kids didn't make it, jimmy. in fact, until the '50s when the first heart operations started to be done, almost at the time like an experiment to try to save these kids, we didn't have any chance of helping them. because the blood had shifted so far out of gear that when these kids turned blue they could compensate for a while but ultimately the body couldn't take it any longer. and the birth of technology in medicine and certainly heart surgery is directly tied to saving the lives of children like billy, and it has become now one of the best examples i can think of of how technology has changed our lives for the better in america. >> jimmy: it really is amazing what they do. [ applause ]
something that -- i just can't imagine being left to our own devices in this situation like that. thank god we live in a big city where it was available and we had insurance and people taking care of us. it really -- i mean, you hesitate to say you're lucky in a situation like this, but we absolutely were very, very lucky. >> i brought you a little present. >> jimmy: oh. >> always nice to have knowledge because knowledge is power. >> jimmy: okay. >> i want to show you a video of a heart and then show everybody else. you probably have become the world expert in tetralogy of fallot. what went down. because if people really understand the depth of what needed to happen to save your son's life i think it might change a lot of folks' minds about the things you talked about earlier, about funding research, but also encouraging people to go into medicine. it's a fantastic field. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's a blessing to be in it. is that okay? >> jimmy: absolutely. >> i've got a little video. i'm going to put it up there. if it's on that big monitor i can -- there it is. >> jimmy: this is your heart? >> this is your heart, actually.
>> jimmy: oh. >> so the blue is the veins and the red is coming from the clean blood. so the blue blood's coming from your legs, supposed to go to the lungs. see the blue arrows. the yellow arrows with the red blood is clean blood from the lungs going back up into the aorta which goes to your brain, kidneys and everywhere else. this is normal. notice this wall here. that wall's nice and thick and intact. that's all you have to focus on. that wall if it's not there lets the red and the blue mix like they're not supposed to. and that causes the redness or the blueness that a child has. so you have a picture. >> jimmy: yes. >> this is an image of what billy's heart looks like. notice that wall's missing here. and there's a little white arrow that goes across into it. so when that wall's missing, because that muscle between the two main chambers is not formed. but because of that these tubes, the blue tube takes dirty blood to the lungs, the red tube takes clean blood to your brain and everywhere else, they no longer can discriminate between what blood's coming into them. so the blue blood goes across the middle and gets into this red. you must have done this at home.
if you take a little food dye and drop it into the toilet bowl, you know how it turns color? >> jimmy: yeah. i've never done it. only a lunatic would do something like that. [ laughter ] what's going on in your house? [ laughter ] i can imagine it, though, yes. for sure. >> people always call friends who've had beets. two drops of beets go in the toilet they think they're having bloody stool. it turns everything that color. well, same thing happens to blood in your body. you get a little bit of the dirty blood mixing with the clean blood and the baby turns blue. and so that very attentive nurse who identified the fact that that was happening to billy, again, changed the course of his history. because now instead of being discovered weeks later and you wondering what the heck's going on, why isn't he growing, the murmur together with that leads you along a path to an operation that was unimaginable when you and i were born and today is becoming so commonplace that the procedures that someone would go through -- i mean, cure's a strong word. but as the audience will meet shaun white, he should grow up
completely normally with no limitations and give you a complete challenging life. [ cheers and applause ] he should torture you. >> jimmy: dr. oz is here. we'll be right back. dad, one second i was driving and then the next... they just didn't stop and then... i'm really sorry. i wrecked the subaru. i wrecked it. you're ok. that's all that matters.

♪ >> jimmy: we're back with dr. oz, who's a real doctor. he operates on people. and by the way, congratulations, yesterday you did win a daytime emmy. you won for best talk show -- [ applause ] very interesting. your competition happened to be -- one of your competitors was your own daughter. >> my biggest competition. she's beaten me. daphne hosts "the chew." she's the young woman on that show with mario batali, michael simon and all those folks. and we've had an ongoing challenge. in fact, we bet this year -- because i've had to eat fried oreos, things i've never tried in my life before because i lost to her. but this year i said whoever loses has to cook for the winner. and because i don't know how to boil water that means she loses no matter what.
>> jimmy: i see. yeah. >> interesting story about her. the same way that billy's going to torture you for the rest of your life -- >> jimmy: i'm sure he will. >> my daughter daphne when she was born i was in medical school. and like most medical students i really thought i could do everything. i'd read all the books after all and got good tests on the score -- good test grades. so i thought i'd deliver her. >> jimmy: oh, yourself. >> yeah. so i didn't ask anybody about this. i thought it was a good idea. i told my wife while she was going through contractions. so the midwife who ultimately delivered her is looking at me strangely. i'm coming over there trying to get ready. so she finally says, you know, you might actually enjoy it more if you're on the other side. and it turns out that daphne's cord was strapped around her neck. the midwife at one moment says knife. i said there's no baby yet. she says give me the knife. takes the knife, cuts the cord. which means the clock's ticking like a bomb about to explode if you don't get that baby out. gets her head -- my wife had one request of me. my father's head was so large they had to make special hats for him in the military. >> jimmy: wow. >> daphne -- >> jimmy: like the wizard of oz. [ laughter ]
she got daphne's head. she delivered her. she had a cone head. it was sharp as a conehead from "saturday night live." and her apgar score, which is the score we can use to predict mortality rates, was a 2 out of 10. she was completely blue. much bluer i'm sure than billy. and lisa was positive the child had died in utero. >> jimmy: wow. >> i actually didn't know what had gone wrong. i just couldn't believe that this bad thing had happened to me. and thankfully she obviously made it and survived. >> jimmy: that little girl grew up to be a beautiful woman who you beat at the emmys. [ laughter ] >> all because she made it. >> jimmy: another tough night for her. yeah. wow. [ laughter ] may i ask, what goes on in the operating room when they're doing the operation itself? is it intense? >> you don't want it to be intense. for people to function at their optimal level they've got to be a little bit loosey-goosey. and that is hard to do when someone's got their chest open and things aren't going well. so i personally always play music. and i think a lot of physicians now as well do it. my father-in-law believe it or
not in 1969 was in "rolling stone" magazine as rock doc because he was the first guy to play rock music in the o.r. which back then was thought -- you couldn't do that. but nowadays most docs do. we actually play music that's different when we open the chest, different when we're actually doing the really delicate part on the inside, and then when we close we have different stuff. so we might have, you know, jay-z closing and lady gaga in the middle somewhere, one of her calmer pieces. ed sheeran, you know, one of his cool songs might open the game up. because that way you're still emotionally engaged. and the patients, who will sometimes say i don't like that kind of music, they get their own tapes. >> jimmy: so they have -- >> they have audio tapes on. they're separate. and we get to play -- >> jimmy: who knew there was a dj in the o.r.? that's unbelievable. [ laughter ] >> we have a boombox way up high so we don't get blood on it. that's the one rule. >> jimmy: my god. well, that was an unnecessary detail. [ laughter ] but thank you, dr. oz. i appreciate your being here. congratulations on your emmy. >> thank you. >> jimmy: before you go, i want
to -- >> i want to tell you something important. we get dealt cards in life and they're not always the cards we want. this could have been a knockout blow for you and molly and the rest of the family. but god was giving you a little noogie. i know it hurt a little bit. >> jimmy: yeah. >> but i am so confident he's going to do well. and i honor very much you for what you have put into this and the emotion that you shared, which is what all parents feel about their loved ones. god bless you. >> jimmy: well, thank you, dr. oz. dr. mehmet oz. we'll be right back with shaun white.

>> jimmy: so this is something that -- we called you and asked you to come do the show. >> yeah. >> jimmy: because of that. and you drove down from mammoth mountain where you were working i assume. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and thank you for doing that, by the way. >> of course. yeah. >> jimmy: at the last minute. >> yeah. it was a mission to get down. we actually -- i take an old car to get up there. and so the starter wouldn't work at the gas station, and then all of a sudden we're getting down and i get home and my electronic keypad won't work at the house. so i had to get a hotel. but i made it. i made it. and our flight got canceled. >> jimmy: oh, my god. >> so i'm here, though. >> jimmy: well, thank you for being here. >> of course. >> jimmy: i really appreciate you being here. you were born with basically the same heart disease that our son was born with. >> yeah, exactly. >> jimmy: how old were you when you had your operation? do you know? >> i was probably just born. similar situation. like i was slowly turning blue. and my parents knew something was up. the doctors came in, found out that was the scenario, the heart
condition. so i don't really obviously remember much at that point. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: right. >> i was so young -- >> jimmy: pretty high. >> it brought back a lot. i have the same exact photo with the tubes and the whatnot. and i have a lot of socks, actually, from when i was that age because my mom, the only thing she could dress me with was socks because she couldn't touch me in my tube there. you know, when i was getting -- >> jimmy: how many operations did you have? >> about three. yeah, that portion of heart that was explained earlier actually broke, the stitching broke. so i had to go back in and get it repaired again. >> jimmy: oh, boy. >> but yeah, only three. and then i was very lucky. they actually stopped doing the artificial valve sort of -- did you say that your son was getting one or no? >> jimmy: he did not get an artificial valve. >> okay. that's great. because those need to be replaced. i was one of maybe 1,000 that won't have to get the secondary surgery to replace that valve. so i feel very, very fortunate. >> jimmy: and did your parents, did they become overly protective? did they keep you away from
doing things? were there sports they didn't allow you to play? >> obviously not. [ laughter ] i mean, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i mean, that's -- good for them. >> yeah. well, that was the thing. and that's so important. is my parents are the ones who really made me who i am. obviously. they didn't put these limitations on me. it was obviously explained, hey, this is what happened, you should be cautious. but it wasn't this like hovering over me to make sure i wasn't getting into trouble or working out too much or doing anything active. but you know, they really let me find my own limitations. so that's kind of like why i feel like i'm so athletic now and i just did whatever i wanted to do, because they never really put that limit on me. >> jimmy: yeah. that's -- i mean, i think that will be very difficult for most parents to do. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i think it's interesting to hear because it makes me think about it a little bit differently. >> yeah. of course. >> jimmy: you have this scar -- i assume you still have the scar -- >> i do. it's super faint now -- >> jimmy: is it visible now?
>> no. >> jimmy: oh, good. >> you can barely see it through all the muscle. [ cheers and applause ] i knew jimmy was going to try to get my shirt off. >> jimmy: i always do. and i'm going to keep trying until it happens. >> i figured. >> jimmy: did your condition -- did this situation that you had -- i'm not even sure if it's a condition anymore. but did it worry other people? like teachers or coaches or -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: people like that. >> you know, i had a big scare when i was younger where i actually -- i passed out on a soccer field. and you know, the community we lived in, everybody was like that's it, that's the final straw, you know, you're letting your son do these things. and everybody was so worried it was my heart. it was actually our coach wasn't allowing us to have water till we completed our laps. and i passed out, you know. but that was a big -- >> jimmy: that used to happen. >> all you needed was an accent to be a soccer coach, basically. [ laughter ] not too long ago. he's british or something. >> jimmy: we had that in baseball in las vegas. they would say you can't drink water or you'll cramp up. >> oh, wow. >> jimmy: that was what people
thought. and it wasn't that long ago. it's not like this was the '30s or something. but we seem to have figured things out pretty well since then. >> yeah. >> jimmy: that was the only issue. do you get checked regularly still? >> i do. not so much as i've gotten older. but you know, every like couple years i'll go in and do what's called a stress test. you go in and they put, you know, monitors and all these different things on you and you have to just work out. you have to ride a bike or an elliptical or something like that. it's very intense. you have to blow into tubes to see how your lungs are working with the blood pumping and everything. and that's the big one. and always a scare. so whenever i go in i'm always like i'm going to destroy this test. >> jimmy: you're trying to show your mettle to the test as well. >> i'm trying to win. it's just in me. >> jimmy: what about your love-making? how has that been affected? [ cheers and applause ] >> the stress test results were
good. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're training right now for the olympics, right? >> yes. >> jimmy: maybe just one olympics or two olympics? [ applause ] >> possibly two. yeah, it's amazing. i'm up at mammoth mountain right now training to compete 2018 in pyeongchang in korea for my fourth winter olympics. and then they actually put skateboarding in the olympics. so i might be able to go for the summer in 2020 in japan. >> jimmy: you can keep going indefinitely. this is unbelievable. >> yeah. [ applause ] >> jimmy: and are you approaching it differently this time around? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you cut your hair. the tomato isn't flying -- >> aerodynamic. yeah, i actually -- i work out now. >> jimmy: oh. [ laughter ] >> i didn't -- we took the chair lifts. i'm going downhill. finally i was like i'm turning 30, i guess i should start working out. but honestly, you know, everything's like feeling great. heart is healthy. you know, everything's going really well. >> jimmy: well, i have to tell you, whether you realize it or
not, you are an inspiration to a lot of families who go through this situation. >> thank you. >> jimmy: and i mean, well, thank you. thanks to your parents really for not taking it easy on you and -- [ cheers and applause ] and i have to say, it makes me believe that my son too is going to win olympic gold medals for the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] i don't know what event. only if they might make pizza eating an olympic event. but thank you for being here. i really appreciate you driving down. we'll get you a better car to take you back up. okay? >> please.
