It's unbelievable how quickly he's bouncing back!

We couldn't be more thrilled!

Dr. Joseph Zamramski announced today during a press conference that his patient, Bret Michaels, has been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery from his brain hemorrhage!

Wow!

He says:

"Mr. Michaels was indeed a lucky person, a very lucky person. He's improving and I expect him to continue to improve. I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery. He's just one of those lucky people – 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities."

Lucky indeed!

We're rooting for you, Bret!

But don't rush your recovery! Take all the time you need to get better!

Will Bret Michaels Be On The Celebrity Apprentice Finale?

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteReality TV

Doctors say it's definitely a possibility!

Dr. Ronald Benitez says that "if all the studies he had done show no evidence of an aneurysm being found, it would really just depend on his energy level. If all the tests were negative, and I was watching the show at the end of May, I personally wouldn't be surprised if he was on it."

After Bret's doctors said he had a "will to live," we certainly hope to see him on the NBC reality series' live finale on May 23.

Bret Michaels has been quite the trooper since diagnosed with a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Even after several setbacks, his representatives are still giving his fans hope by rescheduling his upcoming appearances and going ahead with his concert dates with Lynyrd Skynyrd this summer.

That's a true rock star!

Hang in there, buddy!

Bret Michaels' Sister Says "He'll Outlive Us All"

Filed under: Sad Sad

wenn2271817jb__opt1.jpg

That doesn't surprise us one bit! After all that Bret Michaels has been through, we know he's a survivor!

His sister, Michelle Sychak spoke about his current condition on a Nebraskan radio show, saying:

"He's doing good. He's not by any means out of the woods, but he is getting better every day. Things are definitely looking up… He sounded good — as good as you can when your brain's throbbing. He seems very coherent to me and like he knew what he was saying. … [He] does sound like Bret. Truth be told, I think he'll outlive us all.

She added that the fact that Michaels lived through the initial rupture was "a miracle in itself. I've never known anyone that has dodged so many bullets in their life, both figuratively and literally."

Bret's doctors say:

"He is very lucky, as his condition could have been fatal. With further testing and rehabilitation, they are hopeful that he 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."

We know you'll get through this quickly, bb!

Bret Is Conscious And Speaking!

Filed under: Sad Sad

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!

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!

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!
