Rush Hoping For Extra Innings


After being off from his syndicated show last week Rush Limbaugh was back on the air yesterday and gave an update on his health. In February Rush announced he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and has been dealing with treatments ever since. Here’s what he had to say yesterday.

Rush told his million of listeners that the first two attempts to deal with the cancer failed and he’s in the bottom of the 9th inning. The third attempt to beat back the cancer is apparently showing better results as Rush stated he managed to get on base and he’s hoping to make it all the way home and shoot for extra innings. “As many of them as we can get,” he added.

Rush said the latest treatment has been much better than the first two. He said he felt good over the weekend but admitted things can change rapidly. “I have good days and bad days. My energy level is great. I’m confident this is going into extra innings.”


    • Than ‘ANY’ other individual?!?!

      And, expressing an opposing view, to you, is ‘hate and division’?

      Well, I’d say that, yes, you do wish him — and anyone else who disagrees with you — ill.


  1. A tribute to Rush Limbaugh
    Rush Limbaugh is standing up for what he believes is right and refuses to back away from what he believes is wrong.
    Man is and always has been his own worst enemy! It seems as though we hate the truth more than a lie! The truth isn’t always what we want it to be, but will always align itself with the facts.
    A time for death is appointed to every man! Yes Rush will die, but not until his time comes. When that time comes and it may yet be many years, he will die a hero in the eyes of many. In the final assessment his life and legacy will be judged, not by man but by the same judge that will judge you and me! It is written, “Judge not lest you be judged”.
    It seems that man is very good at finding fault, but not very good at overlooking anyone’s fault but his own. Until we can judge everyone by the same standards that we judge ourselves by, man will continue to be his own worst enemy.
    Wake up, smell the flowers and ask yourself, what have I done for mankind? At the very least Rush tried. Yes he made mistakes and he also got things right as he tried in his own way to point out the many things that we would not have known without him. There are few things that trouble men more than others finding out the truth about them.
    Did Rush step on some toes along the way? Of course he did and many of them needed to be stepped on! For those who could think on their own, he gave them food for thought and many of them came away with a different point of view.
    Is Rush a Hero? To quote someone from the past, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!”
    Someone once said, “There’s a little good in the worst of men and a little bad in the best of men”.
    None of us are perfect, but few of us seem to know it!
    Thank you Rush, wishing you the very best, “God Bless” and take care.
    Henry Allan

  2. Rush, if you read this, thank you for what you have done and continue to do for this great Country. There is so much division, deception and name-calling that we as a nation are growing weary from the grind of it all. You have always worked at reminding us of the bright side of life as Americans. It shouldn’t take an attack on our soil to bring us together as one nation. ( “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” -Jesus in Matt 22:25)

    I will continue to pray (selfishly) that God will lengthen your days for our benefit, but I also want to encourage you that while it is natural to cling to this present life with all we’ve got, if we could only experience the next life for but a second, we would gladly let go of this one and never want to return. Stay close to the Lord, Rush. If you do, you will be fine no matter what tomorrow brings. Keep this thought with you: “However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him–1 Corinthians 2:9

    Praying for successful treatments and restoration of your health!

  3. God bless you Rush. There are a number of patients with advanced cancer who have triumphed through lifestyle and diet modification, use of supplements and spiritual (prayer etc) and social support. The Metabolic Approach to Cancer by J. Winters ND is a book you might find helpful. This book discusses how to use simple interventions to fight cancer and how they work at the cellular level. As you probably know, you must protect the body with nutrients while undergoing chemotherapy. I hope that your oncologist has included a nutritionist who specializes in cancer patients as part of your healthcare team. Remember sugar feeds cancer. God bless.

  4. Rush has done more for radio’s benefit, particularly AM radio’s benefit, than any other single individual since the advent of Top 40 in the 50s.
    If anyone posts a negative remark today about a dying man, let him answer to the Heavens, because he will.

  5. Continuing prayers for Rush and his recovery.

    You may disagree with his views, but he is a human being going through a terrible illness. As the saying goes, we should not wish something like cancer on our worst enemy…for those who may actually think that Rush is some kind of ‘enemy’.

    With everything that’s going on in our country, right now, let’s all show some kindness and respect..and, while we’re at it, let’s also respect the right of free speech, even if it’s speech we disagree with…
