After experiencing more than his share of thorns in the last couple of weeks, everything is coming up roses for Bret Michaels.

Barely a week after being hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage, the Poison frontman and Rock of Love star has been discharged from the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery. While Michaels’ surgeon, Dr. Joseph Zabramski, says that the singer is “still very sick right now,” he says that Michaels’ prognosis looks overwhelmingly positive:

“Mr. Michaels was indeed a lucky person, a very lucky person…He’s improving. I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery. He’s just one of those lucky people – 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities.”

While “normal activities” may be a relative term in Michaels’ case, it appears that means he’ll be hitting the road once more: Recently it was announced on the singer’s Web site that he’ll be resuming his Roses & Thorns tour, which was postponed due to his hemorrhage, later this month.
