Just as Bret Michaels was recovering from a brain hemorrhage, and got the okay from his doctors to make the trip to New York to appear on the live finale of “Celebrity Apprentice,” he’s back in the hospital with a slate of new medical conditions. Earlier in the week, he was feeling numbness on the left side of his body. Doctors determined that he had had a “warning stroke”—a condition that gives stroke-like symptoms but doesn’t do permanent neurological damage. As they ran MRIs and CT scans on Bret, doctors found another problem—our “Rock of Love” casanova has a hole in his heart. No, literally. And this is on top of his diabetes and the emergency appendectomy he had in late April.
Bret’s rep says, that he is “in good spirits, great medical hands and is positive and hopeful that everything is going to be okay. He is up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive but he has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again.” And Bret still plans on filming Sunday night’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” to show Holly Robinson Peete who is boss and win $250,000 for the American Diabetes Association.
Get better soon, Bret.
