Joseph Amorese was recovering in a hospital after a hernia operation and, understandably, wasn’t feeling particularly lucky. But his luck was about to change due to a lottery ticket that was tucked into a get well soon card the man got from his father. The 46-year-old patient scratched off the numbers to find he had won no less than $7million. “I was pretty shocked to say the least. I had surgery so I didn’t jump up and down, but in my mind I was jumping up and down. All the pain I felt, I did not feel for at least a couple of days,” said the lucky winner.
