Bret Michaels, has been listed in critical condition and is fighting for his life. The rockstar was rushed to an undisclosed hospital late last night, after experiencing an excruciating headache. Doctors have reported that he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage, (bleeding on the brain), according to sources close to the situation.
People reports, “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,” the source says.
Two weeks ago, Michaels was hospitalized for an emergency appendectomy in San Antonio, Texas. Over the last couple of years, the rockstar who suffers from diabetes, has experienced several complications from the disease. Now his health has taken a turn for the worse. So sad.
TMZ reports, Cedars Sinai reports that roughly 1/3 of people who have a subarachnoid hemorrhage die during the hemorrhage because of extensive brain damage. Obviously, Michaels has already cleared that hurdle.
As for Michaels’ treatment, Cedars warns, “Because of the ominous prognosis with delayed definitive therapy, referral to a center of excellence with experience in treating a massive hemorrhage is imperative.”
Very scary stuff. According to sources, family has been flown in to provide love and support. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his two little baby girls. We are praying that he will pull through this.
