Bret Michaels Rushed To Hospital For Brain Hemorrhage

As if Bret Michaels hadn’t been in the hospital enough in the past month, reported that the Poison frontman was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Friday after suffering from a severe headache on Thursday.  Bret Michaels’ status is critical, according to sources at the scene, and they say he was diagnosed as suffering from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is bleeding between the brain and the thin tissues that cover the brain.  In Bret Michaels’ case,  the bleeding seems to be centered near the base of the brain stem.  

“After several CAT scans,” a source told, “MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”

It has only been a little over a week since the “Rock Of Love” star was released from a Texas hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to have his appendix removed.

A subarachnoid hemorrhage can be found to have been caused in various ways, among which are  abnormal connections between the arteries and veins in the brain, a bleeding disorder, a cerebral aneurysm, blood thinners, or a head injury. 

Bret Michaels suffered a head injury at the 2009 Tony Awards when a lowering prop hit him as it lowered at the end of his performance with his band, Poison, and the cast of “Rock of Ages.”  It is unknown if the Poison singer’s current condition is connected to the incident.

At present, the “Rock of Love” host has been appearing on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and was still in the running to win as of the last episode.
