Tests suggest setback for Bret Michaels

Medical tests show Bret Michaels has suffered a setback in his recovery from a brain hemorrhage, according to a statement posted on his official website Tuesday.

Despite the development, "doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery," the statement said.

The rock singer and reality TV star suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and was hospitalized Friday.

"Test results indicate a set back in Bret Michaels' condition, a side effect from the brain hemorrhage called hyponatremia, a lack of sodium in the body which leads to seizures," said the statement posted by road manager Janna Elias.

Michaels "is responding well to tests and treatments," she said.

"Even though today was a minor set back Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday," Elias wrote.

    @Craig. Why don't't you let others be with regards to their religion and freedom of worship. Do u have to pick a forum like this to show how callous and ignorant you are? If you worship the devil, please by ALL means do go ahead but don't go pking you nose into other people's business!

    To be honest, he was a terrible musician that tried to hang on to the glory through terrible reality shows and grand openings of gas stations. I just hope he gets better soon, I can't handle 2 months of horrible tributes to a man without talent.

    Not trying to tell anyone how to feel for or about anyone, but this is a serious matter and if you have no compassion, then maybe you should take a good look at yourself. Cannot believe you would take this as an opportunity to put someone down?? This is NOT the place or time for negative comments!! KARMA....I do believe in it and also wish it happened instantly rather than spontaneously!!

    Just returned from Arizona 8 day drive through state. 370 kidnappings in Phoenix last year, 2nd in world (1st is Mexico City) see NBC news from Feb this year for that video. All people we spoke with, except admitted illegal who worked at one hotel, were in favor of this law and were worried about profiling. However, they feel it has to be done...

    I get asked for ID all the time in Mexico and Spain, even Canada. You have to get out of tourist areas to really witness what other countries do to protect their borders. Most of all other countries have very strict rules/fines/jail time for not having documents to present. I would never think that a countries constitution would apply to me, except the country of my citizenship.

    I saw 80-100 people in front of a Phoenix Home Depot (only one of who knows how many such stores are in the Phoenix area). They were in public right of way waiting to be picked up for day laborer jobs; they and people stopping for them were blocking 2 lanes of heavy traffic. Now, I know not all drug dealers or day laborers are illegals however, the vast majority of those involved in very serious issues have been proven to be so in this city/state.

    Drove thru 2 border checks both were 35 miles into the state. Watched them waive trailer after trailer thru, when it was our turn we nodded that we were us citizens and they waived us thru. no id check, etc. I would gladly have been delayed 10 minutes while they ask and ck id and vehicle. Didn't do it at either stop. These people have serious problems.
