Bret Michaels Update

Bret Michaels

There’s finally some good news regarding Bret Michael’s health. According to his reps, Brett is responding well to tests and treatments.

“Michaels remains under 24-hour observation in the ICU and is in positive spirits. He is responding well to tests and treatments,” says his reps in a statement. “Even though today was a minor setback, doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery.”

Bret is now beginning what some say will be a slow and painful recovery from a brain hemorrhage. The 47 year-old rocker and former Rock of Love star is however having to deal with a minor setback as he was diagnosed with a side effect that leads to seizures, according to his reps. Also complicating his recovery is the fact that Bret had an emergency appendectomy earlier this month, and also suffers from Type 1 diabetes.

Bret is however conscious and in critical but stable condition. There is also some speculation that Bret’s head injury is a result of the injury he suffered last year at the Tony Awards when from a prop struck him at the show. It is however possible the cause of Bret’s injury may never be found as is often the case with many patients with this condition.

Donald Trump, Bret’s boss on Celebrity Apprentice, sent Bret some well wishes over the weekend. “I am deeply saddened to hear about Bret Michaels and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time. He’s a great competitor and champion and I hope he will be fine,” said Donald to UsWeekly.

Former Rock of Love star, Bret Michaels, who is currently starring on this season’s Celebrity Apprentice is reported as being in critical condition after suffering a brain hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem).

According to PEOPLE, Bret, 47, was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Thursday night after complaining of excruciating headaches.  A source says, “After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”

And just how serious is Bret’s condition? Well according to TMZ, those not receiving proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month, and that second bleed yields a 70% mortality rate.

The good news for now is Bret is said to be “awake, in good spirits and talking.” Rock of Love season 2 winner Ambre Lake tells TMZ she’s spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he’s stabilized and conscious. However the next 24 to 48 hours are  said to be critical, and Bret will be closely monitored.

Also speaking out is ROL season 3 winner, Taya Parker.  Taya, who is no longer with Bret, spoke to RadarOnline, giving them the following statement: “It’s been a very difficult time.  Between his appendectomy and this current situation, everyone that cares for him has been vigilant with their prayers and hopes for a full recovery.  My heart and thoughts are with him always.  Bret’s determination and drive have always been one of his most endearing qualities.  His love for his family and his fans makes his heart a heart that’s larger than life.  Bret has overcome many adversities and struggles in his life, and he always handles himself with dignity.  I could not be more proud of him, the person he is, and the loves that drive his life.”

Sending prayers and well wishes to Bret.
