Google CEO Larry Page to miss I/O, next month's earnings call due to "throat condition"
That Google would already rule out Page’s participation in an event that is still several weeks away is what has generated some concern from Wall Street, as the detail-free explanation seems reminiscent of many of Apple’s denials about Steve Jobs health condition – at one time Apple notoriously indicated that Jobs had “a bug” when he had undergone rapid weight loss due to cancer treatment.
Doug Anmuth of JP Morgan had this to say:
Of course Mr. Page may also simply treasure his privacy and not want to share the details of an otherwise ordinary illness, but Wall Street is always afraid of uncertainty, and uncertainty about the long-term health of a CEO is one of those things that investors will probably keep an eye on until Page returns to regular public appearances.

Let's hope so, not actually ready for losing someone special to the tech World after losing Sir Steve Jobs.
Larry page is a gem, let's hope that everything goes Alright for him.
