Rush Limbaugh is the undisputed king of talk radio.
But he hasn’t been on the air much in recent weeks following his cancer diagnosis.
All of that could change after he dropped his biggest update yet.
In February, talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh shocked the word by announcing he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
Since then, he hasn’t been on the air every day, instead relying on guest hosts to take over his show as he goes through treatments.
On one of his rare occasions on the air, Limbaugh has the opportunity to give his biggest update yet earlier this week.
He first explained that his voice is slightly strained, explaining that “it’s just from lack of use,” adding that “I’m actually feeling better than I have in about a month. I’m actually feeling what I would call normal prior to the cancer diagnosis happened.”
Limbaugh went on to explain that while he feels much better now, that wasn’t the case in previous days.
“I had a dire, dire, dire reaction, side effect reaction to the type of chemo I was on,” he explained. “The bottom line is I couldn’t walk for three days. My leg muscles had swollen, it was hideous. It was hideous. Blood clot in the left calf. Even had some eye damage in my right eye.”
He went on to explain that he is currently on a temporary hold while he recovers from the reaction, but that he looks forward to being back to normal soon.
“And so I had to go off the stuff, and I’m in a temporary hold right now,” Limbaugh said. “Steroids have been administered to undo the damage, and they’re working like a champ. And so regardless of how my voice sounds, be confident here that I’m feeling better than I have in a long, long time and I’m looking forward to chatting with you all on the phones.”
If there’s one thing that Rush Limbaugh is known for, it’s being a fighter.
For decades he has stood up against the establishment and been attacked mercilessly in the media for it.
So while he is fighting a much more dangerous threat right now, he is certainly going to fight it with everything he’s got.
And millions of Americans are praying for him along the way.
