Steve Jobs Issues Statement About His Health
Monday, January 2, 2009
Posted by: Charles

Steve Jobs has issued the following statement today concerning his health:

Dear Apple Community,

For the first time in a decade, I'm getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.

Unfortunately, my decision to have Phil deliver the Macworld keynote set off another flurry of rumors about my health, with some even publishing stories of me on my deathbed.

I've decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.

As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008. The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors. A few weeks ago, I decided that getting to the root cause of this and reversing it needed to become my #1 priority.

Fortunately, after further testing, my doctors think they have found the cause—a hormone imbalance that has been "robbing" me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy. Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.

The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I've already begun treatment. But, just like I didn't lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it. I will continue as Apple's CEO during my recovery.

I have given more than my all to Apple for the past 11 years now. I will be the first one to step up and tell our Board of Directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple’s CEO. I hope the Apple community will support me in my recovery and know that I will always put what is best for Apple first.

So now I've said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this.

Steve


On behalf of the entire 123Macmini community, I would like to wish Steve a speedy recovery and better health in 2009.

I have a feeling this isn't the last we hear about Steve's heath, but I hope they leave him alone for a while now.

I wonder what the treatment is? I was really scrawny in high school, so my mom used to tell me to drink Ovaltine. I somehow doubt that Steve was given the same advice.

I still sounds strange to me, but I hope he gets well soon.

You never know...Aquaman...

It could be that Jobs has hired Frau Blucher to be his nurse...

It's nice to know that someone in the world is a bigger Young Frankenstein freak than myself. Laughing

We need to go out for a drink sometime and have a Young Frankenstein/Blazing Saddles quote-off. Cause I'm with you man. Those are the two funniest films ever, and probably in that order.

Did I know? I saw it on Broadway with my wife last year. That's about the only one she could get me to go see. I do about one every five years. Laughing

Couldn't have said it better. Laughter is by far the best medicine.
