Bret Michaels Suffers Brain Hemorrhage, In Critical Condition

Bret Michaels has been hospitalized and is in critical condition after suffering a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage, or bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

The 47-year-old rocker had a painful headache Thursday night and is under “intense observation” after being admitted and undergoing CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, according to People.

Bret‘s last hospital stay was earlier this month as he underwent an emergency appendectomy.

Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery, Bret!

    I hope he will be OK. This must be very frightening for his family.

    If it’s a ‘massive’ bleed I doubt the recovery will be swift. Brain injuries take a long time to heal and cause all sorts of problems, especially when they occur in the brain stem. But here’s hoping i’m wrong and that he’s one of the lucky ones.

  • Rhonda

    My prayers go out to Brett and his family.
