CTV's Mike Duffy is alive and well in Ottawa, where he is recuperating after open heart surgery. (Yes, he has a ticker!)
Duffy, host of Mike Duffy Live on CTV Newsnet, underwent the procedure at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute last week.
Lillian Duffy, the newsman's mother, told the Charlottetown Guardian that he is expected to make a full recovery.
"His operation was successful and he's home," she said from her Charlottetown home. "We're all grateful he's making a good recovery."
Duffy, 60, suffered a minor heart attack 14 years ago.
I know he's doing okay because he emailed me a few minutes ago to ask me about something I blogged while he was out of commission. I don't think it made him happy. But hey, better a mad Mike than a dead Duffy.
Get well soon Mike!
