William Hawkins, a doctor specializing in pancreatic and
gastrointestinal surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo.,
said that the type of slow-growing pancreatic tumor Mr. Jobs had will
commonly metastasize in another organ during a patient's lifetime, and
that the organ is usually the liver. "All total, 75% of patients are
going to have the disease spread over the course of their life," said
Dr. Hawkins, who has not treated Mr. Jobs.
I'm just excited to see him come back. He is one of the greats of are time and seeing him in bad health is kinda sad.
Wall Street really likes it when Steve is well and at the Apple helm!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
A liver transplant is no joke. Mr. Jobs has a long road ahead. Wish him well, regardless of his status or position in society.

"While Jobs is still set to return at month's end, the report indicates he may work only part-time at first. Of course, for Jobs, part-time is probably not possible: despite his illness he has still been involved in Apple's inner workings"
The reason that everyone in Wall Street love him is because he has taken a a company that was just "not cool" to a "cool" and no one else knows how to do this...

I would say he's "gotten credit for" rather than "taken". Remember, this was a guy that was screwing things up so badly (having the Apple II guys fighting with the Mac guys), that they fired him.
Read some of the things written by the guys that actually made the Mac: (Raskin:) "Jobs didn't understand what was so important about making computers graphics-based. I finally got the hardware architecture I wanted by making it a fundamental principle behind the Mac."
(Bud Tribble to Hertzfeld on Jobs:) "If you tell him a new idea, he'll usually tell you that he thinks it's stupid. But then, if he actually likes it, exactly one week later, he'll come back to you and propose your idea to you, as if he thought of it."
Sure, he's had some wins since coming back, but I think there are a lot of people that could have been put in his place and done the same thing, if they had just listened to their engineers.
