Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant and is Recovering Well.

Some of the mystery surrounding the condition of Apple CEO and founder Steve Jobs ended tonight.   Jobs is recovering from a liver transplant he had in Tennessee about two months ago and is expected back at work at Apple soon.    The WSJ reports:

Steve Jobs, who has been on medical leave from Apple Inc. since January to treat an undisclosed medical condition, received a liver transplant in Tennessee about two months ago. The chief executive has been recovering well and is expected to return to work on schedule later this month, though he may work part-time initially.

Mr. Jobs didn’t respond to an email requesting comment. “Steve continues to look forward to returning at the end of June, and there’s nothing further to say,” said Apple spokeswoman Katie Cotton.

Tomorrow’s Apple stock may surge Monday on this news as there has been widespread speculation that Jobs would not be able to return to Apple at full strength where that now appears to be a distinct possibility.   Under Jobs leadership Apple effectively resurrected itself as a viable technology company after nearly imploding under the pressure of cheap, massive PC sales in the 1990s.     Yet thanks to the iPOD, iPHONE, and other Apple gadgets the company has enjoyed a huge resurgence in popularity, prestige, and most importantly for investors….stock price.

  2. From some of the comments I read at other sites about this news, a lot of people are angry about this. How can Jobs be the “sickest patient on the waiting list”? Seems that the hospital that did the surgery saw dollar signs and a “free publicity” opportunity to make more money.

    Doctors are the number one killers in America. Not car accidents, plane crashes or cancer. Doctors. Healthcare has become so expensive that those who REALLY do need to have treatments cannot afford it unless if doctors and hospitals can screw your health insurance over real good.

    Put the blame for healthcare cost where it really belongs. Greedy doctors and big pharmaceutical companies. The medical industry is not in the business of “saving lives”. They are in the business of generating death. Death makes them money. Not life. Not natural items, herbs and plants.

    In essence, doctors who take the “hippocratic oath” of “do no harm” are just hypocrites. Knowledge is power. You have to be your own doctor, medical advocate and do your own research. Because if you don’t, the choice will be made for you. And the choice won’t be in your “best interest”.
