Larry PageLate last week, Larry Page, who regained the helm of Google back in 2011, missed a public press event where Eric Schmidt, the former CEO said he would miss two more going forward a month or so.

Supposedly he "lost his voice" but that concerns investors and company fans who find it hard to believe someone can lose their voice for the next several weeks where he can speak a month or two from now.

The Wall Street Journal shares part of an email Page sent out to Google employees where he wrote "nothing seriously" is wrong with him.

In an email to employees on Thursday, however, Mr. Page wrote that "there is nothing seriously wrong with me" and that he would "continue to run the company," according to a person familiar with the matter.

Larry Page was named the CEO of the year by Investor's Business Daily.

With CEOs and public companies being very tied together, health concerns can be a serious issue for the company's future. This was a huge concern for Apple, which is doing pretty well since the passing of Steve Jobs.

I certainly hope Page is doing well.
