The Poison rocker is currently in an Arizona hospital receiving treatment for a brain haemorrhage which he suffered last Thursday. Although he is still in the intensive care unit (ICU) of the medical centre, Bret is said to be recovering well.
“Michaels is conscious, talking very slowly and in good spirits, his rep tells,” People magazine reports.
Doctors are apparently hopeful Bret will fully recover in time, although it will be a long process. Initial tests have suggested he suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage, which is a stroke that causes bleeding in the fluid-filled areas at the base of the brain.
Bret Michaels, 47, is best known as the front man for the band Poison. He is also a contestant on the current season of TV’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.” He was hospitalized last Thursday after complaining of a tremendous headache.
“We thank you for your continued support and well wishes,” said a message posted on his Facebook page Thursday.
His management team are confident he will get better in time to restart his current Roses & Thorns tour on May 26. All the shows he has missed will be rescheduled, and he is also still planning to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd in June and July.
“While Bret is recovering we obviously have some shows that are being rescheduled. We are working to reschedule dates from now until May 21,” a statement on Bret’s website reads.
“At this time we are planning to resume the tour May 26 in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, provided there are no further complications or setbacks. We will then continue with all scheduled dates throughout the summer and fall.”
