Bret Michaels has been rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition after suffering from a MASSIVE subarachnoid hemorrhage last night!
A source reveals:
"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."
Subarachnoid hemorrhaging, which is bleeding at the base of one's brain stem, is often a complication from diabetes, which Michaels is known to suffer from.
Reports are also stating that:
According Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, people who don't receive proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month — and the odds of surviving a second bleed are extremely slim.
We sincerely hope for his speedy recovery!
