Title: Get Well Mike Joy
Post by: Cheryl on November 07, 2004, 03:42:16 PM
Hi Kids,

Lou and I and David are here at Motor Mile Speedway for today's Hooters race.  Just checking Jayski and saw this item.  Great to hear Mike is doing well after this emergency surgery on Tuesday.


Thanks to fast planning by executive director Paul Smith, and the surgical skills of Dr. Michael Campbell, FOX Sports NASCAR anchor Mike Joy made a brief pit stop at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center yet still made it to Phoenix on time. Joy checked into the hospital's emergency room Monday morning with acute stomach pain. Campbell removed Joy's gall bladder Tuesday at noon, and less than 48 hours later, Mike was flying to Phoenix. "Other than a little soreness around one incision, I feel fine... its pretty amazing," Joy said . This was once considered major surgery, and now its a comparatively minor procedure." Ironically, Joy was scheduled for tests Monday at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center to try and pin down the source of occasional stomach pain. "Fortunately, Paul was able to put things in motion quickly, and everything went very smoothly. Its a time when you really appreciate the efforts of friends and family."(
