Bret Michaels: Still Critical After Haemorrhage
Contrary to reports that his condition had stabilised, Bret Michaels remains in a critical state following a brain haemorrhage Thursday night. The Poison frontman is suffering from slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, and is under 24-hour surveillance.
The Los Angeles Times website reports that doctors are still trying to find the source of Michaels’ haemorrhage.
“Further testing this week will help locate the source of the bleeding,” states today’s update on Michaels’ website.
Michaels’ tour manager, Janna Elias, has been posting the updates.
“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.”
Elias added: “There are several incorrect reports on Bret’s condition. He remains in a critical state at an undisclosed location. Further tests are being run and information will be updated in the coming days.
“Please remember Bret is, and always has been, a fighter and survivor and is under the best medical care possible.”
Donald Trump has also voiced his concern. He got to know Michaels during the filming of the US TV series Celbrity Apprentice and has been in touch with the hospital. He says the singer is “In big, big troule. The prognosis is not great”. Trump has also out forward the theory that Michaels’ current problem might have been caused by an accident when performing at the Tony Awards last year. He hit his head onstage while performing with Poison.
