Beloved Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh just gave fans a subduing update on his battle against cancer on Tuesday, revealing that he’s taking everything “day-to-day.”
The venerated conservative voice first revealed his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, and since then has kept discussions about his health minimal in order to keep the focus on his work.
However, he has provided occasional updates on his progress, with the most recent one taking a cautious but optimistic tone.
“Every day remains a gift,” Limbaugh told his fans during his Tuesday show. “You know, I wake up every morning, and I thank God that I did.”
“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,” Rush added. “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.”
Though Limbaugh has attempted to maintain a sense of normalcy in terms of his radio presence during his cancer battle, he’s been forced to take many days off from the studio to attend to his health.
“As we say, everything’s day-to-day, and especially in the circumstances I find myself in,” Rush noted. “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.”
Limbaugh told listeners in October that despite aggressive treatment efforts, scans showed “some progression of cancer.” The host has declined to reveal further details about his disease progression.
