This is terrible!

The stunt man who was injured while performing in Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will be stuck in ICU for Christmas.

Christopher Tierney is suffering from a broken elbow, broken ribs, and a cracked skull after plummeting 30 feet during a live performance earlier this week.

Tierney's dad says that he and the family are making plans to be with him at the hospital in New York during the holiday weekend where he will he stay before being moved to a rehabilitation center next week.

His dad also explains that Tierney cannot wait to get back on stage:

"[Chris] cannot wait to get back into the Spidey costume … It won't be as soon as he would like but … his spirits are high and he cannot wait to get back."

Really?! That show did some serious damage to him. We just hope that a severe accident like this won't happen again if the show continues.

Get well, honey.

Bret Michaels Suffers A Setback

Filed under: Sad Sad

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!

More On Bret Michaels.

Filed under: Music MinuteSad SadReality TV

wenn2271817jbjb__opt1.jpg

As Bret Michaels remains in the ICU under heavy sedaditves after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage on Thursday night, sources are now shedding light on what prompted the reality star to get himself to the hospital.

Michaels reportedly suffered from what doctors call 'thunderclap headaches,' which are defined by the suddenness and severity of their pain.

A source says he felt "like [getting] hit in the head with a baseball bat over and over again."

That sounds awful! Thank goodness he knew to take them seriously!!

Meanwhile, doctors are still searching for the source of the bleeding in his brain.

Dr. Keith Siller, of NYU's Comprehensive Stroke Care Center, says:

"In some patients, doctors never find the source."

However, this is because the bleeding could be small, and the rupture can sometimes cure itself. Apparently then "you basically just wait for the symptoms to go away" while doctors monitor for complications. Siller also asserts that "they're on the better end of things," even though Michaels might need speech or physical therapy as a part of his recovery!

We're just grateful he survived and seems to be on the mend! It may a difficult road to recovery, but the worst seems to be over!

Positive thoughts are coming your way, Bret!

A Bret Michaels Update

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteSad SadReality TV

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!

Bret Michaels In CRITICAL CONDITION After Severe Brain Hemorrhage!

Filed under: Sad Sad

Oh no!

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!
