Bret Michaels -- Stabilized

4/24/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_brett_michaels_EX_TMZ_01Bret Michaels is awake, in good spirits and talking ... TMZ has learned.

Ambre Lake, the Season 2 winner of "Rock of Love," tells TMZ she's spoken with people who are close to Bret who say he's stabilized and conscious. 

Lake's tale matches another contestant who has also spoken with Bret's bandmates.

We're told the next 24 to 48 hours are critical -- Bret will be closely monitored.

a subarachnoid hemorrhage is a type of stroke. http://www.musc.edu/bmt737/Fall2003/Theodosha/stroke3.html If Bret survives, he will undoubtably require many months of therapy. Because this is a stroke, it is unlikely that he is "awake, in good spirits and talking". Just damage control spin by an on the ball publicist. Best wishes to Bret for a complete recovery.

Glad to hear Bret's improving...
Still optimistic though, as Captain Phil Harris also improved enough to be talking with nurses...



Now, let's hope that Bret will start taking his diabetes seriously by making healthier lifestyle choices...Some of us are tired of senseless deaths of ones we've grown to know and love via music or the silver screen...Especially when they're largely preventable...

Sue,
Not all "strokes" are debilitating...I had my first "stroke" at 18, and a series of TIA's between 02-03...
None of them left permanent damage, and I was indeed walking/talking withing hours of the episodes...
That being said, this should be a huge wake-up call for Bret...He has the means and ability to get the very best medical treatment for his conditions, and by reveling in a lifestyle of excess-it's a direct slap in the face to those of us who cannot afford that kind of care...



Bret,
Be well...Live well...And stick around for a bit longer...

Jane..i'm not talking about his brain hemorrhage..i'm talking about Ambre commenting on his current state. who is she to say how he's doing. I won't believe anything until I hear something from his family, band mates or management team...not some SKANKER from ROl.




"6. The Chicago Tribune is reporting he is in critical condition after suffering a 'brain hemmorage' - so yeah...I would say it is credible.

My father had a subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is a subtype of stroke, 6 years ago. He survived, but the hospital, although experienced in dealing with this, was unsure. People should familiarize themselves with the signs, as it has an extremely high death rate because most people don't make it to the hospital.

Remember the Phil Harris of Deadliest Catch had a massive stroke and was awake and talking and then passed. Hopefully for Bret it won't be as bad.
