Conservative talk radio veteran Rush Limbaugh gave his many dedicated listeners an update on his ongoing battle with lung cancer battle, proclaiming that “every day remains a gift.”
“You know, I wake up every morning, and I thank God that I did,” Limbaugh told his audience on Tuesday, according to Fox News.
“There will probably be, down the road, similar-type days where I will need take a day for rest or for whatever medical challenges present themselves,” the outspoken conservative stated. “But the fact that I’m able to get back here and be with you is a genuine blessing, and I appreciate it and I appreciate your understanding throughout all of this.”
“As we say, everything’s day-to-day, and especially in the circumstances I find myself in,” he added.
Limbaugh announced early in February that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the 2020 State of the Union address by President Donald Trump the following night.
Back in October, Limbaugh revealed to his listeners that recent testing had indicated “some progression of cancer.” The long-time talk show host missed several shows that month in order to receive treatment.
“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh said at the time. “When you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.”
On Tuesday, Limbaugh reminded his faithful listeners that “there are gonna be days where I’m not gonna be able to get in … there are medical challenges that present themselves and that have to be dealt with and some of them, you know, pop up as a surprise. Some of them are predictable.”
“But I continue to look at this and live this as a day-to-day proposition,” Limbaugh concluded. “And so the bottom line is that every day is a gift. And even on those days where I’m not able to get here, realize that I wish I could be. And that when those days occur, that I will do what I can to get back as quickly as is possible.”
Saints, continue to lift up Mr. Limbaugh in prayer! We believe in a great, healing God!!
