Bret Michaels: I Almost Died!

by at . Comments

When Bret Michaels hilariously knocked himself silly at the 2009 Tony Awards, he was embarrassed and angry.

Following his hospitalization for an appendectomy last week, however, the walking STD rocker is just grateful to be alive.

"They told me that if I had gone onstage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died," the Celebrity Apprentice contestant wrote this weekend on his blog.

Michaels added that he has a "pretty good threshold for pain," but "getting your appendix out HURTS."

That seems obvious, but remember: this is the same person who didn't comprehend why his duet with Miley Cyrus was utterly inappropriate.

In the blog entry, Michaels thanks his fans for their cards, gifts and well wishes. He also answers the most important question of all:

"Yes, there are hot nurses taking care of me, in case you were curious."

Bret: Glad you made-it,bro'! Don't be phasing out now--we haven't had a chance to put a record together yet(ha,ha!)Just kidding,B'! I am glad you made-it,though. I've enjoyed your music for years(though I did like it better when you were with C.C. than with that other guitarist). Poison is one of my favorite all time hair-bands! Also,I like what you had to say about Miley when she re-did 'Every Rose has it's Thorn'(even though it's your song). And,I like your duet with the supergirl---no matter what anybody else says---It Rock's! I like the blend of then and now. Hearing something new in your sound,really takes me back to better times,dude...Thanks! Keep gettin' better,and get healthy,brother! Your fans like me want you to stick around a while,alright? Later. You pal;Hollywood...
