Bret Michaels leaves hospital, expected to make full recovery

Bret Michaels, 47, was discharged from a Phoenix hospital, where he underwent treatment and tests after suffering a brain hemorrhage April 21, People reports. Due to privacy laws, doctors couldn’t reveal when the Poison frontman left the hospital and where he’ll be receiving further treatment, but did acknowledge that he is “a very lucky person” and “improving.” “I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery,” said Dr. Joseph Zabramski, during a press conference today at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital. “He’s just one of those lucky people – 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities.”

      really wonderful news.

  • Ceballos

    Terrific news…it seemed really scary there for a while.

    Here’s hoping he was well enough to hit on the nurse who wheeled him out of the hospital.

  • Dinana

    I keep thinking of the SCRUBS episode when Carla & Ted sang “Talk Dirty To Me” a capella to a patient in a coma. I hope Bret was so lucky!

  • Ambee

    I am so happy for him, but especially for his kids!

  • crispy

    Drats! Double drats! Why do they keep updating this story?! Where are the Justin Bieber updates?! Ugh…. Seriously Bret hasn’t been popular like since when.. was it the 60’s or 70’s?

    • Joshtinpowers

      That’s cold dude, just cold.

      • Joshtinpowers

        Unless you were being sarcastic, because then it would be funny.

        The only thing more confusing than fake crispy is real crispy being fake crispy (being real crispy?)
        I’m blonde. Slowww dowwnnn. heh

      You’re an a-hole

      The real mystery is why anybody would assume the identity of someone that has gained a following by spending all their time commenting on an EW board. Fake crispy – aspire to do bigger things buddy – you don’t want to be crispy.

    • kyle

      He’s only 47, meaning he wasn’t even born until 1963, so how was he popular in the ’60s or ’70s? If you’re going to post something like this at least put some thought into it.

    Cheers!This is the best news!Get well soon Bret!

  • Kimmy D

    Great News! Hope he wins Celebrity Apprentice too!!! His rock workout was fantastic, and he is so polite to the skanky women who come on to him. I would have run screaming when that blonde stood over him in the workout.

      “…he is so polite to the skanky women who come on to him”
      Awesome, just awesome.

    • Ashleigh

      Let’s be fair – he’s a bit skanky himself.

      • No

        Not really.

  • Remerdre

    Whoo-hoo Bret! Don’t ever scare us like that again.

  • phil

    GREAT NEWS!! :-)!

  • Andrew

    Awesome news! Glad to hear he was released! You’re a trooper, Bret! I’ve been rooting for you on The Celebrity Apprentice…even though I’m from Illinois, Rod was an idiot as governor! Don’t believe a thing he says (as witnessed on the show as well)! Wishing you a speedy recovery, my friend.

  • angeljake

  • Sondra Key
