    Me too, marlap. I'm hoping and praying Bret hangs in there, and pulls through this. Keeping his family in my thoughts as well.

    Well hummm. I just read that his condition is improving. From Huffington Post:

    Bret Michaels has spoken and shown some signs of improvement since he had a massive brain hemorrhage on Friday, his father, Wally Sychak, told Access Hollywood on Tuesday.

    Sychak said his son was "speaking slowly" the last time they spoke, on Saturday. He also said Michaels has been "moving his arms and hands."

    Michaels' rep told Access Hollywood that Michaels is still in the ICU undergoing more tests to determine the source of the bleeding in the his brain stem.

    His condition has been upgraded from critical to stable, Radaronline.com reports.

    I wouldn't trust anything but Bret's website, and there is nothing new there. No one even knows which hospital he's in, so I doubt any of the rumors are true.

    Re: Bret Michaels - Season 3

    I just googled Bret's name to see what the various reports were. It appears that he may be here in Arizona at Barrow's Neurological Clinic, under the care of Dr. Robert Spetzler's team. If so, he is in the best hands possible.

    I must admit that I'm not a rock music fan, and had never heard of Bret until I saw him on CA this year. But he seems to be a nice guy, and a genuinely caring individual. So I join with all those who hope for a good outcome.

    Latest update from one of Bret's reps:

    UsMagazine.com

    Breaking News: Bret Michaels Now in "Stable" Condition, Rep Says
    Tuesday – April 27, 2010 – 4:12pm

    Good news: Bret Michaels is now in stable condition, his rep confirms to UsMagazine.com.

    "He's still in the ICU, but he's stable," the rep told Us Tuesday of the 47-year old star, who has been hospitalized in critical condition at an undisclosed facility since early Friday, when he suffered a brain hemorrhage.

    Earlier Tuesday, Michaels' father Wally Sychak told Extra about speaking on the phone with his ailing son. The former Poison frontman and Rock of Love star "sounded a little slow, but fine," Sychak said.

    "He understood what he was saying and knew me. Everything seemed good that way...They say he's moving his arms and hands," he says. "The best as they could expect at this time."

    The medical team looking over the musician and reality star have yet to determine what caused the bleeding at the base of Michaels' brain stem.

    His rep noted on Monday that "doctors are seeing all the tests, hoping the worst is over."
    ETA: The latest update on Bret's website states he is in critical, but stable condition:

    Bret Michaels Medical update -- Posted by Janna on Tuesday, April 27 2010

    He remains in critical but stable condition according to his doctors.

    I, too, doubt Bret will be able to take part. According to the latest update on Bret's site, his recovery "could take weeks to months":

    With further testing and rehabilitation, they 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. 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 set back Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday.

    Re: Bret Michaels - Season 3

    This is from Bret Michaels official facebook page:

    Test results indicate a setback in Bret Michaels condition a side effect from the brain hemorrhage called hyponatremia a lack of sodium in the body which leads to seizures.

    Bret Michaels was the topic of Larry King Live as Donald Trump, Jr. and other celebrities weigh in on Michaels condition. Due to the severity of his condition, Bret Michaels continues to remain hospitalized in an intensive care unit at an undisclosed hospital. He remains in critical but stable condition according to his doctors. Last night on Larry King Live Bret Michaels condition was the topic on the show as Donald Trump, Jr., Darryl Strawberry, Sanjay Gupta and Carlos Diaz discuss concerns, lasting affects as well Michaels as a person. Donald Trump, Jr. stated that "Bret is very likable guy, down to earth and a solid person." He stated "out of all the people from 'Celebrity Apprentice,' I may have had the best kind of off-camera relationship with him over the three years." Trump, Jr. also says he is a great father and rocker and concerned for the singers health. Strawberry who starred on Celebrity Apprentice with Michaels says he is a good friend on and off camera. He is a hard worker and is a creative force on the show. Without a doubt he lives a crazy lifestyle and he wishes him a speedy recovery. Carlos Diaz who is a Radio Host and Entertainment Correspondent says Michaels is "a star that transcends several generations." He has reinvented his career, both on "Rock of Love" and "Celebrity Apprentice" as well as his music. Dr. Sanjay Gupta is CNN's chief medical correspondent says a subarachnoid hemorrhage is an aneurysm in one of the blood vessels. He stated about 10 percent of people don't survive. He obviously survived that. About another quarter of people don't make it through the first couple of days in the hospital and 30 percent make a full recovery.

    Michaels' medical workup demonstrated findings of a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke that causes bleeding in the fluid-filled spaces around the base of the brain. It presents itself suddenly as the sound of a loud gunshot or thunderclap at the back of the head causing severe cranial pain and muscle spasms. Many people are speculating Michaels head injury suffered from a prop striking the singer at the Tony awards last June is the cause. Additional studies are planned throughout the week to hopefully detect the exact cause of the rupture. Coupled with the fact that Michaels is a lifelong Type 1 diabetic and has recently undergone emergency appendectomy surgery while on tour in San Antonio, he will remain monitored closely by his medical team to make sure no complications occur from the diabetes.

    The most common cause of this condition is a spontaneous rupture of a cerebral aneurysm, however, 15 to 20 percent of spontaneous episodes of this hemorrhage are found to have no cause. Michaels has undergone a continuous series of tests while in the ICU including angiograms, CT scans, MRI’s and transcranial dopplers (TCD's). Doctors state Michaels is very lucky as his condition could have been fatal. With further testing and rehabilitation, they 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. Michaels remains under 24-hour observation in the ICU and is in positive spirits. He is responding well to tests and treatments.
