“There are going to be days that I’m not going to be able to be here because I’m undergoing treatment, or I’m reacting to treatment,” he said, adding that he’ll be gone for the next few days as he and his doctors determine the best course of action for him.
“We’re at full-speed ahead on this, and it’s just now a matter of implementing what we are going to be told later this week,” Limbaugh said. “I hope I’ll be back Thursday. If not, it will be as soon as I can — and know that every day I’m not here, I’ll be thinking about you and missing you.”

He started his national radio show in 1988 from New York and later relocated to Palm Beach, Florida.
