Michaels Recovering Well

Bret Michaels is recovering so well from a brain hemorrhage that he could be back on tour by the end of May, according to a statement posted on his website.

“While Bret is recovering we obviously have some shows that are being rescheduled. We are working to reschedule dates from now until May 21. At this time we are planning to resume the tour May 26 in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, provided there are no further complications or setbacks,” Michaels road manager Janna Elias said.

“We will then continue with all scheduled dates throughout the summer and fall, including the June and July tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd.”

The artist was hospitalized April 23 in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital, where doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

He faced a setback in the recovery process days later, suffering a side effect from the hemorrhage called hyponatremia, which the statement described as “a lack of sodium in the body which leads to seizures.”

Doctors are continuing tests to determine the cause of the rupture, which some have speculated may have stemmed from a blow to the head the singer received while performing at the Tony Awards last June.

Still, Michaels is reportedly conscious, in positive spirits and responding well to tests and treatments.

“Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday,” the statement said.
