Bret Michaels’ condition is still as fragile as ever. For now, Bret Michaels condition updates don’t have him getting worse, but he isn’t better yet. There are reports that his voice is slurred, but even if it is true, it might have been expected. Right now, the main focus is on finding the source of his brain hemorrhage and containing it before it gets worse. For the moment, any rumors that he is at death’s door are premature, as his representatives say that he has a good shot at recovery. But if Bret Michaels’ condition is to get better, doctors must find the brain hemorrhage sooner rather than later.
The last update on Michaels’ website repeated much of what followers already know. He is still under 24-hour surveillance at an ICU in Los Angeles, as doctors work around the clock to find the source of his brain hemorrhage. But the site claims that an official doctors report will be posted later this week.
Until then, Bret Michaels’ condition outlooks continue to vary. Some say that he will be on the road to recovery, while others are less optimistic. One of those who isn’t too hopeful is Donald Trump, Michaels’ Celebrity Apprentice boss. Trump told TMZ that he thinks Michael is in “big, big trouble” with an ominous prognosis.
Trump claimed he is in close contact with those in the hospital, but everyone else that close hasn’t sounded this grim, at least in public. But Trump said that being an ‘amazing competitor’ could save his life – although to improve Bret Michaels’ condition, a lot more is needed.
In contrast to Trump, qualified neurologists are a bit more optimistic on the situation. Dr. Joseph Broderick told MTV News that he can recover, assuming they find the brain hemorrhage in time. Yet he warned that the source isn’t found in 10-15% of these cases, and that this condition is fatal for 30% of patients within a month. However, he assured that many patients can live normal lives with the right treatment.
Bret Michaels’ condition does seem possible to fix, so there is hope. Still, a recovery will only happen If everything goes right, and that remains in question. If he does have the ‘best medical care possible’ then the brain hemorrhage will be found and he can begin to get better. But if the doctors’ best isn’t good enough, then things will be more problematic, and Trump’s worst fears could be backed up.
Aside from the new speculation and predictions, nothing else seems to have changed today. The Bret Michaels condition status is still the same as ever, but one way or another, it could change before long.
