Well, I am in love with Bret Michaels, I admit. Not only for his fight, but for his willingness and drive to maintain such a positive attitude given all the circumstances following his relentless health. This is what makes the “Celebrity Apprentice” star so sexy. Be sure to check out pictures and videos below.

According to reports, Bret Michaels has been hit, with yet another health setback which landed him back in the hospital at St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona this week. But of course for my man, he can pull through anything. Since his admission, he has reportedly already been released and will continue with outpatient care. Earlier this week the singer was feeling gradual numbness to his left side of his body so he immediately sought medical attention. Since his massive brain hemorrhage that he had suffered about a month ago, Bret has been continuing in his recovery and with high hopes to return to his regular routine, including a reunion with his band, Poison, as well as starring in the finale of Celebrity Apprentice 3. I am so thankful that he takes his health so seriously. Have you seen him on The Apprentice? Absolutely a bright and marvelous man!

A statement was posted on Bret Michaels website that read he:

“was readmitted to the hospital this week after suffering numbness on the left side of his body, predominantly his face and hands, which doctors described as a transient ischemic attack, or warning stroke.”

Tests were performed that showed the singer “has a small hole in his heart”. This is called a “TIA (or transient ischemic attack) foreshadows a more severe stroke in the future”. Doctors do believe that these circumstances are not related to nor stem from Bret’s brain hemorrhage.

Apparently, Michaels has had a hole in his heart since birth called Patent Forum Ovale (PFO). Because of the singer’s symptoms, he underwent testing that included the following: MRI, CT scan, a doppler ultrasound of his legs and lower abdomen, and an ultrasound bubble test of his heart which proved positive for PFO.

A specialized doctor shared, “We see this in children, but the hole in the heart is supposed to close up before they come out of the womb. But it is common for adults where the hole has never closed up. It is congenital.”

Furthermore, Michaels is said to be receiving proper care and doctors say “his condition is ‘operable and treatable'”. Phew, thank the Lord! I don’t know how much more I can take! And don’t be surprised, a representative says that he will, without a doubt, be present at the Celebrity Apprentice’s live show finale this Sunday on NBC!

I would say good luck to you Bret Michaels, but it is obvious, you don’t need it. You may leave your thoughts for the beautiful rocker who was back in hospital status in the comment box. Also, see photos and a video of his most recent interview with Oprah, just a day before this new health development below. I love you Bret and, for real, get well now!
