Oh no, we hope Bret Michaels feels better soon!
The singer has been hospitalized six times over the course of two weeks after he had kidney surgery — and it was all because he wanted to continue performing for his fans.

According to his friend and longtime guitarist Pete Evick, Bret went against his doctor's wishes and continued to show up and perform at scheduled events.
This happened right after the singer got surgery to put two stents into his body.
Pete explained on Bret's website, writing:
Such a scary moment!
Rock star Bret Michaels had to be rushed off of a Manchester, New Hampshire stage in the middle of his concert last night!
The more we hear about Bret Michaels, the more we like — we think he's a genuinely nice guy who wants to help and repay favors.
For instance, take the fact that Bret just invested in a new room for patients and their families at the Phoenix hospital where he was treated for a brain hemorrhage.
How's that for a thank you??
Everyone pretty much knows that Bret Michaels hasn't been the healthiest dude these past few years, but very few people actually know why.
One of the reasons is that he's been battling
Bret Michaels got super dehydrated and sick with the flu and had to cancel on a charity gig that he was doing. We love that he does his best to reach out and help with his charity gigs, but we're glad he decided to rest instead of push it.
The Poison frontman was expected to make an appearance at the XSport Fitness Rock 'n' Roll Chicago Half Marathon and perform for competitors at the end of the race, but he had to bow out of the event early on Sunday.
"Not only feeling bad physically, but also feeling bummed about missing the show today in Chicago. Such great fans!…"
We, like the rest of those at the Marathon, hope you have a speedy recovery!

Just by looking at this picture, you would never know that a year ago, Bret Michaels suffered from a brain hemorrhage and underwent heart surgery 7 months ago.
Clearly, this guy's a fighter and he's working hard to stay fit and healthy, EVEN when he's on the road.
It's no easy work though. Bret explains his fitness regimen to get that smokin' bod while touring:
"It’s not been a joyride for me. Strength training is key so I can keep up my energy on stage, so I literally bring my gym with me. I have my own gym that we carry behind the tour bus."
And when's off the tour bus, Bret says:
"I go mountain biking [and] running. Whenever I can get off the bus, I take full advantage. I do sit-ups. A lot of sit-ups.
As a lifelong diabetic, every day is a battle. You have to accept that you have diabetes because it is the card you’ve been dealt. I work to enjoy my life like a regular human being while keeping my blood sugar levels as decent as possible. It’s a fine line, a catch-22, a balancing act."
You're obviously doing it though, Bret. Just make sure that even though you're physically fit, you take time out of yourself and try to be as stress-free as possible. You seem to be doing everything right, though.
Can you believe that this guy had a brain hemorrhage a year ago?? After a crazy year of being in and out of hospitals, Bret Michaels has definitely bounced back, looking better than ever.
Getting ready back stage between songs, Bret posed in front of a mirror showing off his shiny abs. We can see that he's definitely been working hard to stay fit during his summer tour.
You're an inspiration, Bret! Looks like you're healthier than ever.
