Bret Michaels released from the hospital
HollywoodNews.com: Bret Michaels has already voiced today that he expects to be back for the finale of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” despite just being admitted into the hospital because of a “warning stroke.” Luckily this hospital stay was only a day long as he has been released today.
His assistant posted the following update to his fans on his website:
“Bret is being treated as an outpatient for the Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO). The condition is operable and treatable and for now he is taking two additional injections daily of a blood thinner. Bret is not only our boss but a great friend to all of us and his health is our main concern. That being said, Bret is a very passionate person and refuses to live his life curled up in a ball wondering if or when something else might happen. No doubt life has risks and rewards, being a type 1 diabetic he has lived with struggles and complications since he was six years old but he always tries to maintain positive attitude and seldom lets things get him down. I have seen him handle the ups and downs, highs and lows of this disease. No doubt these recent medical complications have been tough but he wants to continue to live his life, enjoy every day and get back on the road. He is taking all the medications and steps to insure that he can do that. As his friends and staff we are all making sure that he is not taking any undo risks and we are certainly taking every precaution possible to insure his health and well being. If and when something else occurs we will deal with it at that time. Hopefully, it will be a very long time before we have to deal with anything like this again.
