Nuxhall leaving hospital
BY JOHN KIESEWETTER | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER
If all goes well, Joe Nuxhall will be home before dinner.

Son Kim Nuxhall says his father is expected to be released late this afternoon from Fairfield Mercy Hospital after seven days.

The former Reds pitcher and broadcaster was hospitalized last Tuesday with double pneumonia. Nuxhall, who turns 78 next month, had been short of breath and energy the last week of May.

While in the hospital, Nuxhall received radiation treatment for a cancerous lump on a tonsil, a recurrence of the lymphoma detected three years ago.

“I guess you could say dad is rounding third and heading for home,” Kim Nuxhall said this afternoon.

“Doctors said he’s free to play golf, if he’s up to it. He’s made tremendous progress. He’s a resilient dude,” Kim added.
