Rush Limbaugh continues to battle stage 4 lung cancer, and listeners of his show have noted his absence on several consecutive days this month.
Rush himself addressed these absences on his show recently.
Speaking directly to listeners, he said: “I apologize for being out. I remember mentioning at the very beginning of this that there were going to be random days where I would just need to take off. And the last couple have been in that category. I had some medical challenges, but that was to be expected, dealing with them.”
“Every day remains a gift. You know, I wake up every morning, and I thank God that I did. And 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. 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.”
