He just got out! Bret Michaels spent a harrowing couple of weeks in the hospital ICU when he suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem) on April 21. Bret was released from hospital even though he was “still very sick,” but was on his way to making a full recovery. He was even planning to compete in the live Celebrity Apprentice finale on Sunday.
Unfortunately he’s now suffered a “warning stroke” that has him back in hospital. Tests have revealed that Bret also has a hole in his heart. His neurosurgeon, Dr Jospeh Zabramski has revealed that the news is “devastating…to Bret and his family.” He adds, “The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the…warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain hemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier. Once again, it is great that he quickly reacted to the severe numbness and got to the hospital immediately.”
Michaels attitude is still positive. Dr. Zabramski further states, “I realize Bret wants to make a full recovery so that he can be active with his family, attempt to attend the finale of Celebrity Apprentice and especially get back on the road to continue making music. Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100 percent recovery. Medically speaking it is a fantastic attitude both mentally and physically for him to have. However, Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.”
Stay tuned for more details. We have our fingers crossed for you Bret!
