Bret Michaels experienced a minor setback today. Doctors stated they believe Michaels may have suffered a stroke that led to the brain hemorrhage. In addition to his slurred speech and dizziness, the Poison singer is reportedly having minor seizures as a side effect.
His reps say, Michaels is undergoing additional tests so doctors can pinpoint the source of the bleeding. They add that doctors are “hopeful that Bret will gradually improve as the blood surrounding the brain dissolves and is reabsorbed into his system, which can be a very painful recovery and take several weeks to months.”
Bret Michaels remains in an undisclosed LA hospital, under 24 hour supervised care in a ICU unit. A lifelong Type 1 Diabetic, the Celebrity Apprentice and Rock of Love star, is being monitored closely by his medical team, to make sure no complications occur from the diabetes.
On CNN last night, the Rock of Love 4 winner Taya Parker spoke with Larry King about her relationship with Bret. She stated she had only seen Bret twice after the Rock of Love show ended and they were no longer dating. She added she was heartbroken over his latest medical scare and wished his family the best.
It’s rumored Michaels never really broke up with his baby mama, Kristy Lynn Gibson, who he has two daughters with, Raine and Jorja. Since Bret Michaels hospitalization, Gibson and her two girls have held a bedside vigil providing him love and support. Doctors hope that Michaels will make a full recovery, until then he needs all of his fans prayers to make a full recovery.
