He has cancer?

From what I understand, he is cancer free at this point.
Not necessarily. He had pancreatic cancer, and beat it.

More recently, he had what he thought was a hormone imbalance.

Now, it's "more complicated", although he did not elaborate.
With his history of pancreatic cancer, and his current "hormonal imbalance" sounds like a type of MEN(Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia)...

The Golden Apple

Wonder how many millions of dollars he'll walk a way with?
Last time I checked, it was $5.4 billion (he is worth that much), but that value has gone down.

But his 'salary' is only $1.

I Wonder....

How or if this will affect the Country of the United States?

Will We make it?

Should we all panic and posion ourselves now to save us from the utter lonliness without our new found savior?

I'm for real....My I-Phone is WAYYY more important to me than my country, my job, my kids, my religion and even myself.

Just Curious,

Will everybody be making out wills tonight, or will you be on Apple forums following the status of our chosen one.

I will be here all night...hold on to hope ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!
