Steve Jobs Health – Amen – Wishes For A Speedy Recovery

One of the benefits of living in Palo Alto where Steve and his family reside is that you get access to tons of inside information. Over the years I’ve gotten to know many of his friends from the early days of Apple, and Laurene Jobs was an investor in my last startup. I’ve known about Steve’s health issue for some time (and the cause).

I know that Steve is the CEO of Apple, and there are many who want to know everything that is going on with him. I hope the world won’t dwell on Steve’s health. Let him get back at his pace. I just feel like the privacy for his family is very important, and there are many other bigger important things happening in the world like people dying for freedom in Iran.

It’s now officially out there that Steve Jobs health issue was indeed his liver. Wall Street Journal and AllThingsD MediaMemo are reporting the news that Steve Jobs has a liver transplant and that he is planning on returning to Apple.

Speedy recovery Steve and Laurene.
