Adam Yauch updates fans on his health

It's his birthday, but fans received the present -- of good news.

Adam Yauch has updated fans of his health status in an official fan e-newsletter. He writes:
i'm about a week and a half out of surgery now and rapidly recovering from it [...] my neck and jaw are still pretty stiff from the surgery, but it gets better everyday. had the stitches out this past monday... so things are moving along [...] the next line of treatment will be radiation. that involves blasting you with some kind of beam for a few minutes a day, 5 days a week, for about 7 weeks. that will start in a few weeks.
In the email, Yauch also acknowledged the tributes by artists at All Points West and thanked fans for sending positive thoughts his way.

Happy Birthday Adam!

I did not realize it's his birthday today. How kind of him to think of us on his special day.

I'm relieved to hear he is doing well. I hope the radiation treatment isn't too difficult for him, especially since he is not taking pain medication. He continues to be in my thoughts.

I was worrying about him too. His email set me at ease. I sent him a birthday card. I hope he got it.

I feel for the man. 7 weeks of radiation is not going to be easy. Good luck Yauch.
