Last week, STS9 canceled its Winter Tour 2011, announcing that bassist David Murphy would need to be treated for a cancerous tumor in his sinus cavity that required surgery. This afternoon the band shared the latest information on Murphy’s health, following surgery, writing:

“First and foremost, David, STS9 and their families can’t thank all of you enough for your incredible support through the past week since the announcement of David’s cancer. We’ve received thousands of notes, prayers, well wishes and support all the way from Japan to Antarctica. David went into a nearly 9 hour surgery Wednesday morning and has since been on a steady path of recovery. He’s awake, standing when he can, and overall in great physical form given what he went through just 48 hours ago. While the path to recovery is a long one, you can see the warrior that is our brother Murph every step of the way. He’s well aware of the outpouring of support for him and he’s simply floored by it, as are all of us. We are all blessed and honored to have so many people surrounding us in numerous ways through this challenge. We will continue to keep everyone updated as the days and weeks go by.”

Best of luck in his recovery. Keep positive thoughts. It’s a remarkable healer. On a lighter note, would STS9 PLEASE take Reed Mathis off the hands of Tea Leaf Green. He just doesn’t fit. Thanks.
