It looks like it's going to be a long road of recovery, but Bret Michaels is on his way.
His rep confirms that he's conscious and starting to speak slowly, and is in good spirits! He'll most likely remain in the hospital for the next three to four weeks.
Wonderful! A positive attitude can make all the difference!
According to Dr. Melvin Field:
"Most people [who suffer this type of brain hemorrhage] don't remember most of their hospitalization – they have no recollection. Doctors give patients some sedation so they don't have pain, and that can kind of make it so they don't remember too much. If he came into the hospital awake and talking with a bad headache, there is a very good possibility he'll leave the hospital the way he came. He should be fine."
We're sure that won't be an issue for him! We don't think anyone would want to recollect such a painful and uncomfortable experience!
Hang in there, bb!
