Bret Michaels Suffers a Setback, Doctors Remain Hopeful

by at . Comments

Bret Michaels has suffered a setback.

As the singer tries to recover from last week's brain hemorrhage, he received some bad news in the intensive care unit today: Bret was diagnosed with hyponatremia, a side effect that is caused by a sodium deficiency. It can lead to seizures.

"Michaels remains under 24-hour observation in the ICU and is in positive spirits. He is responding well to tests and treatments," his rep said in a statement. "Even though today was a minor setback, doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery."

The rock star is conscious and in critical but stable condition. His father spoke to him this week and said his son sounds "a little slow, but fine."

Meanwhile, Bret's Celebrity Appreciate cast mates have wished him well, and we encourage THG readers to do the same.
