Poison frontman and truck stop strip club VIP, Bret Michaels, remains in critical condition. Maybe people should know this, because there have been rumors that he is dead.
Bret Michaels continues to remain in critical condition after suffering a brain hemorrhage last Thursday, his rep tells UsMagazine.com. “There’s a rumor out there that Bret passed,” says the rep. “It isn’t true.”
The fact that he hasn’t died would be really good news for him if knew he was alive, but doctors will celebrate for him. USA Today reports:
Joseph Broderick, chairman of the University of Cincinnati Neurology Department, tells MTV doctors should have a better sense of Michaels’ chance of recovery over the next two weeks or so. “Patients typically die within the first couple of days or a week from this kind of stroke,” he said. And Good Morning America reports that in patients who have suffered a similar stroke, “a quarter die in the first week; half die in the first six months.” Arno Fried, chairman of Neurosurgery at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, N.J. says, “I would describe (Michaels’ condition) as guarded. If the bleed has not caused too much damage, the possibility of recovery is quite good.”
Well, that’s good news. There’s a good chance he might live. The only real negative is that the next season of Rock Of Love might have to add feeding tubes to their production budget.
Note: C.C. DeVille walked into the bar across the street from my apartment a few months ago, and every hot chick in the place was all over him like he was giving away Prada bags filled with orgasms. So, this post is in no way meant to offend C.C. By the way, the original title of this post was “Unresponsive Bop”, but I felt that was in bad taste.
IDLYITW’s long distance dedication to Bret Michaels. Get well soon, man. Or don’t. Whatevs:
