Bret Michaels in Stable Condition Following Brain Hemorrhage

UPDATE: According to TMZ, Michaels has encountered a setback in his recovery, and is experiencing hyponatremia, a side-effect of subarachnoid hemorrhages that often leads to seizures.

Nonetheless, doctors remain optimistic that Michaels’ condition will 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.” Fingers crossed.

Our prayers to the hair-metal gods have been answered! Poison frontman and Rock of Love star Bret Michaels is now in stable condition, after being rushed to the hospital on Friday while suffering a brain hemorrhage.

While the “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” singer isn’t out of the woods yet, his rep confirms,

“He’s still in the ICU, but he’s stable.”

Meanwhile, the 47-year-old rocker’s father, Wally Sychak, has confirmed that his son’s condition is improving. Sychak says that he’s spoken to his Bret since the hospitalization, and he “sounded a little slow, but fine”:

“He understood what he was saying and knew me. Everything seemed good that way…They say he’s moving his arms and hands. The best as they could expect at this time.”

As of yet, doctors have been unable to determine what caused Michaels’ hemorrhage, but according to Michaels’ rep they’re “hoping that the worst is over.”

Best wished to Michaels on a speedy recovery. Those crowds aren’t going to rock themselves, after all.
