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.
