Poking around on The Huffington Post today I find a snippit about Steve Jobs possibly looking at a Liver Transplant, which linked to this article on Bloomberg.com. Jobs just recently took a leave of absence from Apple to get his health back in order, and didn’t really say too much about it in the press release on Apples website – but from all that I hear he’s a man who tends to enjoy his privacy when he can.
There has been a lot of play about his health in the media, and how Apple would survive if he were to leave permanently. Much noise was made, the stock fell, then rose, then it… well you get the idea. I admire what he has encouraged the company to do, and the direction that he has pushed Apple and pulled an Iacoca with them – but after all that he is just a man. Apple will survive without Steve, and what I think matters more than all of this, is that Steve survives all of this. I love my iPod and my Mac lappy, but who cares about Apple really? They didn’t save my life, my doc at UPMC did that when I got my transplant.
Any way, what I really wanted to say through all of this I hope Steve makes a full and speedy (as speedy as that can be) recovery if indeed he is need of a new Liver. God Bless Mr. Jobs.
