Celebrity Apprentice star and former Poison frontman Bret Michaels is still in serious condition following a brain henmorrhage, but his doctors are hopeful of a full recovery. Dr. Joseph Zabramski, Michaels’ neurosurgeon, said the rocker has an astonishing will to live.
“Bret’s sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable,” Dr. Joseph Zabramski said in a press statement. “He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he ‘did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor.'”
Dr. Zabramski said Bret Micheals’ “fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage” helped doctors to stabilize his condition when he arrived at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ.
While Bret Michaelsâ€™ condition has improved, Dr. Zabramski said the Celebrity Apprentice star still has a long road ahead to fully recover. “There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels’ condition is serious.” Testing will continue to try to determine the cause of the brain hemorrhage.
A press conference is scheduled for Tuesday by Michaels’ reps to “further explain his condition, treatment and prognosis.”
Bret Michaels‘ condition following the massive brain hemorrhage that landed him in a hospital ICU is not good, Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump said on Monday. Michaels is a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice this season and Trump reportedly has an inside line on Michaels’ condition.
Donald Trump told TMZ.com on Monday that Bret Michaels’ condition is not good. Trump said the musician turned reality TV star is in “big, big trouble and the prognosis is not great.” Michaels remains in critical condition under 24 hour watch according to his tour manager, Janna Elias.
Trump said Bret Michaels has proven to be an “amazing competitor” on Celebrity Apprentice and his fighting spirit “ultimately [may be] the thing that could save his life.” Trump said he believes Michaelsâ€™ brain bleed could be related to an injury the former Poison front man suffered at the 63rd annual Tony Awards last June when he was hit in the head by a stage prop.
Doctors are still trying to pinpoint the source of bleeding in Bret Michaels’ brain and he is currently undergoing further testing. “As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc. will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal,” a note posted on Michaels’ website says.
Singer and reality TV star Bret Michaels‘conditionÂ is still critical Monday after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage. Doctors have so far been unable to locate the source of bleeding.
Bret Michaels was taken to an unidentified hospital Thursday night with an intense “thunderclap headache” – a sudden pain like a baseball bat to the head. These kinds of headaches are reportedly often a symptom of brain hemorrhage.
Michaels allegedly realized he was seriously in trouble when his speech became slurred. “[He] was speaking gibberish and seemingly very frustrated by his inability to make much sense,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
“Further tests are being run and information will be updated in the coming days,” a rep for Michaels said in a press statement. “As of now Bret remains in ICU under 24 hours surveillance. Further testing this week will help locate the source of the bleeding,” Michaels’ tour manager, Janna Elias, posted on the singer’s website Monday.
“Please remember Bret is, and always has been a fighter and survivor and is under the best medical care possible,” Elias said.
Celebrity Apprentice star Bret Michaels remains in critical condition after being diagnosed with a massive brain hemorrhage on Thursday. Michael’s father, Wally Sycheck, says doctors believe the brain hemorrhage may be complications of the former Poison frontman’s diabetes.
Wally Sycheck told RadarOnline.com he spoke to Bret Michaels on Friday morning. “He sounded upbeat and positive but they had him sedated,” Sycheck said. “But he’s doing good. He sounded like my son.”
On Saturday, Michaels’ rep said the singer “remains in critical condition at an undisclosed location. Future tests are being run and information will be updated in the coming days.”
Michaels had an emergency appendectomy earlier this month and doctors reportedly believe that may have been caused by his diabetes as well.
“We’re all keeping our fingers crossed and saying our prayers,” Sychek said. “He just needs to be quiet and keep rested.
Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump said he will keep Michaels spot on the show open. “He’s a great competitor and champion and I hope he will be fine,” Trump said in a press statement.
We wish Michaels well and hope for his speedy recovery.
