Rush Limbaugh gave a heartbreaking update on his battle with lung cancer and he needs all our prayers.
He revealed that recent scans showed some progression of his cancer after treatments seemed to hold the spread in check.
“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” the radio titan told listeners on his afternoon show.
“We all know we’re going to die at some point. 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.”
“The scans did show some progression of cancer,” Limbaugh said.
“Prior that, the scans had shown that we had rendered the cancer dormant.”
“That’s my phrase for it. We had stopped the growth.”
“It had been reduced, and it had become manageable. But it’s always the reality, and the knowledge, that that can change and it can come back, because it is cancer.”
“It outsmarts pretty much everything you throw at it.”
“And this, of course, this is stage 4 lung cancer.”
“Stage 4 is, as they say, terminal,” Limbaugh added.
“So we have to tweak the treatment plan, which we did, and the chemotherapy drugs in hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible.”
“So the idea now is to keep it where it is, or to maybe have it reduce again. We’ve shown that that is possible.”
“If it happened once, it can happen again. So that is the objective of the current treatment plan.”
He added: “Hearing from you, know that you’re out there praying and everything else you’re doing, that is a blessing. It’s just a series of blessings, and I am grateful to be able to come here to the studio and tell you about it.”
God bless Rush Limbaugh.
Rush today: “you only get one life and every single day is a do-over”.
