Such sad news.
Bret Michaels has apparently suffered an unfortunate setback. He was diagnosed with a side effect that leads to seizures (hyponatremia, which is a lack of sodium in the body that leads to seizures).
His rep confirms:
"Michaels remains under 24-hour observation in the ICU and is in positive spirits. He is responding well to tests and treatments.
Even though today was a minor setback, doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery."
Despite all that, doctors are "hopeful that Bret will gradually 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."
Hope he makes it out OK!
