Bret Michaels to Undergo Heart Surgery in January

by at . Comments

Bret Michaels needs your best wishes once again.

A few months after overcoming a brain hemorrhage, the rocker has scheduled heart surgery for January. Says his rep: "It's for the hole his heart. I don't know any specifics."

Fortunately, this ailment has been with Michaels for years and is not life-threatening.

During treatment for a stroke this summer, doctors discovered that Bret had a "patent foramen ovale," something that went unnoticed since his birth and which is "operable and treatable."

The singer's next project is an autobiography titled "Roses & Thorns: The Reality of My Rock & Roll Fantasy. It comes out in March and Michaels' publicist expects his client to be fully recovered by then, saying:

"The next thing he has is his book tour [beginning] March 15, on his birthday. After the holidays, he'll do this and then have time to heal before the whole book publicity campaign."

My prayers will be with Bret Michaels during the surgery, and the recovery he will need during his time to get strong and healthy. You can't keep a good man down were words quoted to my dad when he has his surgery, and I will pass them on the Bret May God Bless
