Jack Sisson's TBI Blog

A hug is duct tape for the soul.

This is a follow-up to our April 25th post on a brain hemorrhage suffered by Bret Michaels (front man for the rock band Poison, star of reality show Rock of Love, and a contestant on this season's Celebrity Apprentice) .

From People Magazine:
According to his doctor, Michaels was readmitted to the hospital this week after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly to his face and hands.

He was diagnosed with suffering a Transient Ischemic Attack, or TIA, described as a mini-stroke or warning stroke that causes stroke-like syptoms but doesn't cause lasting neurological damage. MRI and CT scans then discovered that Michaels had a hole in his heart.

"There is no doubt that [this] is devastating news to Bret and his family," says Zabramski. "The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the Transient Ischemic Attack."
Now, Bret is enroute to New York from Arizona, hoping to make it to the finale of "Celebrity Apprentice," where he is one of two finalists. Donald Trump is to announce a season's winner tonight.

His private jet left Arizona this morning, but made an unscheduled stop in Nashville because Michaels was "complaining of a headache, lower back pain and some cramping in his legs," sources at the airport told PEOPLE. Michaels reboarded the plane after a brief stop and was reported again on his way to New York.

It's too soon to tell whether this decision was too risky, and if Michaels put his health in serious jeopardy by flying across country so soon after a stroke. For now we wish him good luck and best wishes for a complete recovery.
