Get Well Steve

MacMinute is reporting that Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is hospitalized and recovering from successful surgery for pancreatic cancer. Using a PowerBook to e-mail from his hospital bed, Jobs wrote to tell Apple employees that, “I had a very rare form of pancreatic cancer called an islet cell neuroendocrine tumor, which represents about 1 percent of the total cases of pancreatic cancer diagnosed each year, and can be cured by surgical removal if diagnosed in time (mine was). I will not require any chemotherapy or radiation treatments.” Jobs will return to his Cupertino office in September, presumably after the Apple Expo in Paris.

iLounge wishes Steve the speediest and fullest of recoveries, and invites our readers to leave a “get well” message for Steve in this comments thread, which we will forward to Apple. (Negative messages will be deleted and their posters banned; please use good judgment in leaving messages for a man recovering from cancer.)

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Steve…
I am french and I live in the south of France and I just opened a bottle of a very good italian red wine I was keeping for a good opportunity. So i am drinking it just now because you seem to recover well.
I have a splendid wife, two children -a boy who is 3 years old and a girl who is 4 months old-, a pretty small house and a iMac G4, so I think I am among the happy few.
Thank you for playing a part in my everyday happiness

I didn’t realize how much you’ve affected my life until you showed up on the cover on Newsweek.

Thanks for the innovations, BEST wishes for a speedy recovery, and an even speedier return to the iPod team!
