Bret Michaels has been struggling with unforeseen series of serious medical issues. For the past few weeks doctors have also been trying to put the pieces together and find reasons for his neurological breakdowns. What they have found, however, was his undeniable will to fight and conquer these obstacles.
“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,” said Dr. Joseph Zabramski.
According to Vitals.com, Dr. Joseph Zabramski is chief of cerebrovascular surgery at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. He is highly published, holds special expertise in multiple neurological disorders and is a member of Congress of Neurological Surgeons.
“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.”
Bret’s experienced a number of setbacks only in a matter of weeks. These include hyponatremia, cranial and back pain from blood drainage, Michael’s appendectomy on April 12 and the reality star’s history of Type 1 diabetes.
Despite these setbacks, Michaels is fighting to get himself in shape, morally and physically. He’s ultimately trying his best to improve his condition and be able to come back for The Celebrity Apprentice finale. Doctors are not ruling out his comeback.
Dr. Ronald Benitez adds that “if all the studies he had done show no evidence of an aneurysm being found, it would really just depend on his energy level. If all the tests were negative, and I was watching the show at the end of May, I personally wouldn’t be surprised if he was on it.”
Michaels’ neurological team will hold a press conference at noon Tuesday to discuss his prognosis in more detail.
