Pure Cruelty & A New Bulge. Will Jack Leave the Hospital Today?

Monday's launch of The Armstrong & Getty Show included our beloved co-host, Jack Armstrong, calling-in from his hospital bed to provide an update on his condition.

This was supposed to be the day in which Jack was sent home, but listen below as he talks to Joe about why those plans changed.

For those who aren't aware of Jack's predicament, here's a summary.

About a week ago, Jack mentioned that his back hurt. But within a matter of days the pain multiplied to the point where he was writhing on the floor.

An ambulance ride to the ER followed, where doctors determined that his gall bladder was on the fritz (that's a medical term--we checked).

Within roughly 36 hours, he was in surgery to have the offending organ removed.

As Friday's show began, Jack checked-in with an update, which was followed by another quick call at the end of the show. Listen below...
