Lottery ticket in 'Get Well' card is $7 million winner

Winning $7 million would make anyone feel better!

46-year-old Joseph Amorese was recovering from surgery last month.

A get well soon card from his father had a scratch off lottery ticket inside.

The ticket turned out to be a winner!

"So I scratched off the very top part and then I worked my way across this way and then I came back this way and obviously I stopped right here, where it says: "Win seven million dollars," said Amorese.

"I took my glasses off, I'm looking at it and I wound up scratching the rest of them off just to make sure and I was pretty shocked to say the least and I had surgery, so I didn't jump up and down, but in my mind, I was jumping up and down," he said.

Amorese will collect a lump sum of $4.5 million.

He and his wife don't plan on quitting their jobs either.
