Rush Limbaugh makes heartbreaking announcement

•, The Horn editorial team

Limbaugh continues to fight his deadly disease… but says his deteriorating health condition has become a day-to-day struggle.

"Every day remains a gift," Limbaugh told listeners. "You know, I wake up every morning, and I thank God that I did."

"There will probably be, down the road, similar-type days where I will need to take a day for rest or for whatever medical challenges present themselves," he continued.

"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," Limbaugh said.

"As we say, everything's day-to-day, and especially in the circumstances I find myself in."

"And so the bottom line is that every day is a gift," he later said. "And even on those days where I'm not able to get here, realize that I wish I could be. And that when those days occur, that I will do what I can to get back as quickly as is possible."

In October, Limbaugh told his listeners that his battle with cancer had become unwinnable and he was living under a death sentence.

"It's tough to realize that the days where I do not think I'm under a death sentence are over," he said in the Fall. "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."
