Get Well Soon, Nuxy

Joe Nuxhall is in the hospital again, per The Enquirer:

Reds baseball legend Joe Nuxhall is expected to remain in a Florida hospital for a few more days while doctors conduct medical tests for a recurrence of lymphoma, his son said today.

In Florida for the team's annual spring training, Nuxhall, 78, went to Sarasota Memorial Hospital Wednesday for previously scheduled tests related to complications from lymphoma, said his son, Kim Nuxhall.

But Kim Nuxhall said doctors realized his lymphoma, detected in September 2003, has come back.

We here at RHM are thinking about you Nuxy. Get well soon.

UPDATE 4:31 p.m.
There are some additional details on Reds.com that Marty Brennaman shared after visiting Joe in the hospital:

Marty Brennaman, the 78-year-old Nuxhall's longtime broadcast partner, spent 90 minutes visiting “The Ol' Lefthander” at the hospital on Friday.

“He has the same amazing outlook about this setback as he's had about every one of them,” Brennaman said. “He doesn't leave open any possibility that he won't beat it, again.”
