Rush Limbaugh Gives Hopeful Cancer Update: “I’m Confident That I’ll Get Extra Innings”


Conservative talk radio veteran Rush Limbaugh has a very positive update on his battle Stage 4 lung cancer.

“I’m very confident that this is gonna go into extra innings,” Limbaugh said last week during “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

“It was in late January that we learned of the diagnosis,” the radio icon said. “That means we learned of a really tough opponent. So, it was time to go up to bat, time to walk to the plate, bat in hand, and that is exactly what happened.”

Limbaugh went on to describe his first two treatment attempts as “horrible” at-bats, but said that in “the third attempt, I managed to get on base.”

“I hit a solid single and then stole second,” he continued. “I am currently on second base hoping to slide into third and eventually make it all the way home.”

“We’re in the bottom of the ninth. If I get all the way home we get extra innings. And that’s what we’re shooting for here,” Limbaugh said, adding that “anything can change rapidly and on a dime. So it’s a blessing.”

“I believe prayer works. I know it does,” Limbaugh went on. “It is a blessing that in my third at-bat, the last shot that I had at this, I got on base and I stole second, and I’m chugging on to third, and I’m very confident that I’m gonna score.”

“The bottom line is I’m entirely capable of being here today. My energy level is great. I’m doing extremely well. And I don’t think anybody would mind if I told you honestly that I am doing better at this stage than I thought I was gonna be doing,” Limbaugh said.

“I know these people who’ve gone through this, and they’re so eager to share good news and they do, and then the next day, in some cases, or the next week they have to pull it all back because that’s how rapidly things can change,” Limbaugh said, careful to guard his optimism.

“The upshot of it is I’ve rounded second base, I’m pushing for extra innings,” Limbaugh concluded. “I gotta score. I gotta get around to home plate to tie the game and to extend the game for as many extra innings as I can. And it looks like, sitting here today, that it may happen.”
