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.
