May 3, 2010
RadarOnline.com reports: Poison lead singer Bret Michaels remains in the hospital Monday after his tragic brain hemorrhage, but his sister Michelle had a positive update about him and said he is “definitely doing better and he was starting to walk a little bit.”
Calling into The Todd N Tyler Radio Empire show on Monday morning, Michelle said she last spoke to Bret on Saturday and gave the update about her brother.
“He’s up and moving but it is not going to surprise me if he is still in the ICU on Friday. I think they’re having a problem really getting the bleed…I think there are some issues…that’s why the back pain.”
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Michaels was rushed to the hospital last week after suffering a brain hemorrhage which left him with slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness as a result of the bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
His speech is not slurred anymore , but he is dealing with a painful recovery, his sister said. “What’s happened is all that blood in his brain is starting to drain and he’s starting to have a lot of back pain. It’s been I can hear it in his voice, I know he’s in a lot of pain.”
Bret is ready to leave the hospital Michelle said. “I just want to get out of here,” is what Michelle said Bret told her. “He’s so happy that everybody is pulling for him,” she said about her brother.
St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona will be holding a news conference with Bret Michael’s medical team headed by neurological surgeon Dr. Joseph M. Zabramski at noon on Tuesday to update Bret’s condition, treatment and prognosis.
He is now in critical but stable condition & under 24 hour doctor supervision, according to a source close to him.
“The fact that he got medical treatment right away, he went immediately and because there is one of the best neurological centers in America there he was very fortunate and I think he will recover quickly and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him back there sooner than most,” Michelle said.
In a statement to RadarOnline.com Dr. Zabramski spoke about the 47-year old Celebrity Apprentice star, and said “Bret’s sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable.”
