<p><strong>Jan. 5</strong></p><p>Dear Apple Community,<br /><br />For the first time in a decade, I&#39;m getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />I&#39;ve decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I&#39;ve already begun treatment. But, just like I didn&#39;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&#39;s CEO during my recovery.<br /><br />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&#39;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.<br /><br />So now I&#39;ve said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this.<br /><br />Steve <br /></p>
