Rush Limbaugh Gives Harrowing Health Update


Reported By Jack Davis | Published October 20, 2020 at 6:54am

In February, the legendary broadcaster revealed he had advanced lung cancer but vowed to stay on the radio as he battled the disease. Limbaugh said in May that his treatment was physically grueling but that he would not stop fighting. As recently as July, he said he was hoping the treatment would give him “extra innings.”

But on Monday, Limbaugh told his audience that the latest results show the cancer that had been stymied is growing once again, according to a transcript of his remarks posted on his website.

“From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, OK, that’s it. Life’s over,” he said. “You just don’t know when. But when you get that diagnosis, I mean, that’s … So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.

“And at some point you can decide, you know, this medication may be working, but I hate the way I feel every day. I’m not there yet. But it is part and parcel of this.“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but 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.”

He said that when he went to the doctor last week, “The scans did show some progression of cancer. Now, prior to that, the scans had shown that we had rendered the cancer dormant. That’s my phrase for it. We had stopped the growth. It had been reduced, and it had become manageable.”

Limbaugh said the results were in some ways inevitable “because it is cancer. It eventually outsmarts pretty much everything you throw at it. And this, of course, this is stage four lung cancer.”

Later he noted that “stage four is, as they say, terminal. So we have some recent progression. It’s not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction.”

The results mean that Limbaugh’s treatment is being adjusted “in hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible.”

Many on Twitter saluted Limbaugh.

………………………………………….“I try to remain committed to the idea what’s supposed to happen, will happen when it’s meant to. I mentioned at the outset of this — the first day I told you — that I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” he said. “It is of immense value, strength, confidence, and that’s why I’m able to remain fully committed to the idea that what is supposed to happen will happen when it’s meant to.

Prominent Conservative Professor Found Dead at His Home

University of North Carolina, Wilmington professor Mike Adams, a conservative who jabbed liberals with enthusiasm, was found dead inside his home Thursday.

New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to the house where Adams lived and found his body, according to WECT-TV.

No other details about his death were released.

Adams, 55, was just days away from a negotiated parting of the ways with the university, which had faced a groundswell of opinion to sever Adams’ connection with the school after tweets Adams made regarding the coronavirus.

Although Adams was never shy about expressing conservative views on race, gender and every other polarizing topic in 21st century America, a May 29 tweet turned the buzz of criticism against him into howls of outrage.

The tweet was aimed at North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper after some restrictions were lifted from the state’s coronavirus lockdown.

“This evening, I ate pizza and drank beer with six guys at a six seat table top. I almost felt like a free man who was not living in the slave state of North Carolina. Massa Cooper, let my people go!” Adams tweeted.

That was one of a string of tweets Adams issued supporting conservative causes and mocking liberal academia.

Hollywood celebrities took part in a nationwide push to get Adams fired.

The university, which lost a legal battle with Adams when it tried to deny him tenure, negotiated with Adams and agreed to pay him $504,702.76 if he would retire on Aug. 1.

Many voices honored Adams for his work to push back against liberalism.

In announcing that Adams would retire, North Carolina University Chancellor Jose Sartarelli made it clear that Adams was ousted due to his opinions.

“Over the past several weeks, many of you have inquired about the status of a UNCW faculty member, Dr. Mike Adams, in light of the public attention generated by comments he made on his personal social media channels,” Sartarelli wrote on the university’s website last month.

“We can now share the update that after a discussion with Chancellor Sartarelli, Dr. Adams has decided to retire from UNCW, effective August 1, 2020. We will have no further comment on this matter at this time, but we plan to share an update later this week regarding how we hope to move forward as a university community.”
