Bret Michaels’ father regrets not visiting hospitalized son

Wallace Sychak, father of ailing rocker Bret Michaels, spoke with CBS 21 in Harrisburg, Penn., and admitted that he regrets not visiting his son while he’s in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage but says part of the reason he stayed home in Pennsylvania was because he expected Michaels to exit the hospital any day now.

“I’ve been in turmoil whether to go or not to go, but I’ve talked to him three times and he always sounds like he’ll be getting out any time, but he’s still in ICU,” Sychak said. “I should’ve gone on probably the first day, but I held off and I keep hearing, ‘Well, just wait. He’ll be out of the hospital on tour by the end of May.'”

Sychak said Michaels told his father to stay put because doctors were limiting visits. “The bleeding hadn’t stopped completely,” he told a local reporter. “I guess they were trying to decide how to treat it.”

He said his son appeared to be in good spirits.

“He was talking about going back on tour by the end of the month. I thought that’s good for him, because it keeps him going,” said Sychak.
