Bret Michaels describes his emergency room plea

Rocker Bret Michaels is speaking out for the first time since his emergency hospitalization 10 days ago for a subarachnoid hemorrhage. The dramatic events include a particularly tough moment when he first arrived at the hospital.

Instead of complaining about the difficulties of this dramatic experience, Michaels says he feels lucky to be alive.

When Michaels was first brought to the emergency room, the father of two was asked by the doctor if he had any children.

“And I said in these exact words, ‘Am I dying? If I’m dying, I want to see my kids, but if I have a chance, I don’t want them to see me in this condition,’ ” he told People Magazine.

Michaels was released from the Phoenix, Arizona hospital on Tuesday. He’s currently at a rehabilitation facility, and is expected to make a full recovery.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Michael’s doctor said he predicted that Bret would make a 100 percent recovery, a feat that only 10 to 20 percent of patients accomplish.
