A Bret Michaels Update

Right now it's just a waiting game, but Bret Michaels' doctors are searching for a source of the bleeding where his brain is hemorrhaging.

The type of aneurysm that Bret has occurs in only about 2% of the population. Some people are born with it and have no clue that they have it until they start hemorrhaging. Sometimes even smoking can trigger the rupture.

A message was posted on Bret's website:

"At this point Bret remains in ICU in critical condition. He is under 24 hour doctors care and supervision. We are hopeful that further tests will locate the source of the bleeding, which has still not been located. As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc., will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal. Everyone at Michaels Entertainment would like to thank all fans and friends for their continued thoughts and prayers through this difficult time."

This is so sad.

We know you can pull through, Bret!

    Very sad. I hope he makes it.



  2. 2

    I know it sounds bad, but just the fact he can talk (slurred or not) and is able to communicate that he has blurred vision and is dizzy is a clear sign he has not suffered the kind of damage some of us thought he might have. Hopefully a stint to cut off the artery/vein that is bleeding is all he needs.

    Bret, we are pulling for you buddy!! You are a survivor. You will beat this!

    Keep fighting, Bret. Your daughters need you.



  5. 5

    Wow. It's taking a long time to find out the source of the bleeding … almost as long as it's taking Sandra Bullock to decide if she's divorcing Jesse James, or not.
    Anyway, get well soon !!



  6. 6

    :( poor bret



  7. 7

  8. 8

    We are all pulling for you! You are tough! You can make it!



  9. 9

    Love Bret and love Poison, but I really hope he takes this as a sign to SLOW DOWN.



  10. 10

    It sound positive that he is speaking, albeit slurred, but still a very good sign - I hope that Bret continues to get better and prays are answered for his family - from our mouth to God's ears.



  11. 11

    Sending a lot of good thoughts and prayers! This is so sad and I hope with all my heart that he pulls through.



  12. 12

    LOVE YOU, BRET!!!!! PLEASE GET WELL SOON!!!!!!!



  13. 13

    Remember when he hit his head at the award show, I wonder if that was the start of this bleed. I hope he gets better soon!!!



  14. 14

    Bret even tho you like sleezy chicks on tv… that is fine, you're a rocker, thats your lifestyle, you seem like a GREAT guy and we all love you!!!!!!!!!!



  15. 15

    Re: ShoeWhore – I was thinking the same thing! I am beginning to wonder what is really going on. Anyway I hope he can pull through this for his daughters, they seem to mean the world to him and I am sure they are giving him the strength to stay strong and survive.



  16. 16

    god bless him, prayers for a full recovery



  17. 17

    Lots of prayers and thoughts coming your way. Stay strong Bret. I hope they find the source soon.



  18. 18

    this is so sad! hope they find out what is wrong and he recovers



  19. 19

    oooooh so now you care Perez?



  20. 20

    So does this mean he will be canceling his show with Firehouse and Warrant? I had great seats too!

    And for those who think the fact that he was able to communicate is a good sign you are DEAD wrong. I would guess he has already suffered irreparable brain damage and it will continue to get worse if they can't stop the bleeding. It would be a miracle if he even survives this.

    "slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc."

    All symptoms of dain bramage…not good at all. I hope this isn't permanent, but depending on where the bleed is located, Bret's likely fucked.



  22. 22

    Odds are they are just allowing his family time to say goodbye.



  23. 23

    HE'S DONE! WRITE YOUR PRESS RELEASES, MEDIA!! YALL KNOW YOU WANT TO BE FIRST WHEN IT HAPPENS…



  24. 24

    even further PROOF that headbangin' in the 80s was bad for your health!

    Don't need nothin' but a good time, how can I resist…ain't lookin' for nothin' but a good time and it don't get better than slurred speech!



  25. 25

    I sure hope Bret has health insurance; something like this can devastate even well-off people!



  26. 26

    Slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness are the classic signs of perm brain damage.



  27. 27

    get well bret!



  28. 28

    Some other blog said this was caused by the curse of Pam Anderson.



  29. 29

    Sending out major good vibes to him.



  30. 30

    I actually suprised he's still alive with that type of rupture.

    I hope he makes it, but i would not be suprised if things get worse



  31. 31

    Oh God please don't take him away from us! We know you can pull through this Bret! We love you!



  32. 32

    I hope he survives and gets better!



  33. 33

    Love you Bret! Were thinking about you and your family! Get Better!



  34. 34

    Everyone in my house is sending love and prayers your way.

  35. meme says – reply to this


    35

    slurred speech and blurred vision are actually good things right now. Means bleeding isn't in the brainstem. He wouldn't be breathing if it was.



  36. 36

    Perez hates the guy and still comes on as if he cared! Hypocrite!



  37. 37

    Guy is toast on this side.



  38. 38

    Get well Bret…your daughters need you!!!



  39. 39

    God Bless! We all are hoping for a speedy recovery. We know you can pull through this!



  40. 40

    This is very SAD!!!! Like many others have commented - I am sending prayers and good thoughts out to him and his family. They probably had to shave his head, right? So when he recovers, we can look forward to Bret sporting a new look :)



  41. 41

    Oh I hope he makes it…he has too..!!!! This is just tooo crazy!!



  42. 42

    Especially the tour bus thrust! We can't let Bret stop with that!!!!

    Pull thru for us Bret! We need you!!!

    from the apprentice he was seen as a really great guy



  44. 44

    Re: PerezPozze – That is so beyond sad - particularly for his daughters.



  45. 45

    Oh man. I like Bret. Hope he pulls through this. Prayers to him and his family.



  46. 46

    Bret's the man!! Get well, Bret!



  47. 47

    This is so sad…Even tho the man has done some silly shows, and was mocked for it, he has always acted with Kindness and seemed to really truly care for his fans, and appreciative. I pray that he gets well and can get back to doing what he loves… Remember his body is still healing from the surgery he just had with his appendix…May God be with him and get his body to be strong and well…….



  48. 48

    Still in my thoughts, Brett & family. Hoping for the best



  49. 49

    This makes me so sick. I feel so bad for Bret and his family. God be with you Bret and stay strong.



  50. 50

    Re: topshelfmn

    Actually, in the treatment for a brain haemorrhage they go in through the top of the leg and up the veins to the brain….so he'll probably be sporting a shaved….crotch?! :p



  51. 51

    Best wishes Bret.



  52. 52

    Come on Bret!! I really hope this thing is figured out … he is such a good person! I can see it when he was on Apprentice (and I can't remember how he was like in Rock of Love), but he was genuinely full of work-ethics, creativity and he cared soo much for his family and his daughters. So much stress for him, I hope he gets better.



  53. 53

    eeeevery roooose has it's thorn just like eeeevery night has it's daaawn…lol I can't think of anything else to say but GET WELL SOON..



  54. 54

    oh yeah hey gordo since when do you care about Bret Michaels?!?! lol don't you talk shit about him all the time?!?!?!?! pinche brown noser!



  55. 55

    I am keeping Bret and his family in my prayers. You people who are "Debbie Downers" saying things like "he's most likely not going to make it" should be ashamed of themselves. His family and friends could be reading this for somes support and those negative words could really upset them. I just think Bret has always been true to himself and pretty funny and I am hoping that the doctors can figure out what's wrong. He seems like a nice guy and his girls are little and they need their Dad. God Bless Brett and his family.
