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!
