On Rush Limbaugh’s radio show Monday, he gave an update on his treatment progress since being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
While acknowledging that the diagnosis and ensuing battle had profound psychological effects on him and his family, Limbaugh said that his current treatment seems to be working.

“It is a blessing that in my third at-bat, the last shot that I had at this, I got on base and I stole second, and I’m chugging on to third, and I’m very confident that I’m gonna score,” Limbaugh said. “I’m very confident that this is gonna go into extra innings.”
He said he was feeling “extremely good” and was optimistic, but that he knew there would be good days and bad days, so he wasn’t counting on any particular outcome.
