Bret Michaels Condition Improved Enough for Celebrity Apprentice Finale?

Bret Michaels‘ condition could be improved enough for the former Poison front man to appear on the finale of Celebrity Apprentice. Michaels is still currently undergoing treatment at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ after suffering a massive brain hemorrhage just over a week ago.

Michaels was admitted to the hospital on April 22 with extreme head pain and diagnosed with a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke that causes bleeding at the base of the brain. The former Poison front man had undergone emergency appendectomy surgery just before the hemorrhage and is also a lifelong diabetes sufferer. Doctors are still not sure what caused the brain hemorrhage or whether it may have been related to the surgery or his diabetes.

Bret Michaels’ condition reportedly continues to improve, although his neurologist, Dr. Joseph Zabramski, says he is still dealing with “roadblocks” in his recovery – including cranial and back pain from blood drainage and hyponatremia. Hyponatremia is a lack of sodium in the body which can lead to seizures.

Michaels’ medical team has reportedly stated the Celebrity Apprentice star could be well enough to return to touring by the end of the month. He may also be able to attend the live finale of Celebrity Apprentice, according to the latest reports.

Reps for Michaels will be holding a press conference at 12pm on Tuesday to update fans and the media about the rocker’s condition, treatment and prognosis.
