A week after Bret Michaels was hospitalized for a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a doctor at the Arizona hospital where he is being treated at is talking about his condition. The below update was posted on Bret Michaels’ Facebook.

In the days following Mr. Michaels’ hospitalization, due to a subarachnoid hemorrhage, there was a lot of speculation as to where Mr. Michaels was being treated. Due to the severity of his life threatening condition, the instantaneous way in which the hemorrhage presented itself and respect for his family his location was not confirmed to the media. There is a seven to ten day period that is extremely critical in which multiple tests are conducted to detect the source of the bleeding.
“There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels’ condition is serious. We are treating the subarachnoid hemorrhage, which caused his severe cranial pain.” states Dr. Zabramski who has been a top neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute since 1986 and serves as the Chief of Cerebrovascular Surgery and Director of Clinical Neurosurgical Research at the center and is leading Michaels’ team. Zabramski continues “Mr. Michaels will continue to undergo testing considering we have hit a few roadblocks including hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage, an emergency appendectomy performed a week earlier and a lifelong history of Type 1 Diabetes. However, “Bret’s sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable.” He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he ‘did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor.” It was a combination of Bret’s fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition.”

Let’s keep praying it is that fight he has in him that will help with speedy and full recovery.
There will be a press conference on Tuesday at the hospital updating his condition. That is the 11th day of his hospitalization which will get him past that 7-10 day critical period.
