    It was only like a week ago Bret Michaels had emergency surgery for appendicitis and now he is in critical condition after having a hemorrhage which caused bleeding at the base of his skull, one report after the original release said he was conscious but I have not seen any update lately. Does anyone know if he is gonna be ok.

    I heard that he was in stable condition. There have not been any updates on my news sources.

    Have been watching him on Celeb Apprentice...taped earlier of course. I never knew anything about him but he seems like a really sweet guy. He talks that he is a type 1 diabetic. Hopefullly, he will be fine. Awful to hear of this news.

    Sky News in the UK reports he's critical after a bleed at the base of his brain stem which sounds pretty dire.

    But it's weird as all the info comes from his publicist who then admits he doesn't even know where he's being treated!

    News sounds bad, he is in ICU in critical condition and has lost his sight and ability to speak.

    CNN just said that his condition is "critical" and that his speech is "slurred" and vision "blurred" but perhaps we're hearing conflicting reports. I hope he improves.

    Hmmm... it just occurred to me:

    Kurt Cobain - writes a song called Aneurysm, commits suicide with a shotgun.

    Bret Michaels - sings in a band called Poison, suffers an aneurysm.

    I'm thinking that the guys in The Lowlanders, who wrote "Shotgun Suicide", should be careful of what they eat and drink.
