Bret Michaels Back in Hospital After Suffering Stroke

Bret Michaels was re-admitted to a Phoenix hospital today after suffering a Transient Ischemic Attack, or a warning stroke. Doctors also found a hole in his heart. According to this MyFoxPhoenix reports, say his condition is "operable and treatable," and don't think it is connected to his brain hemorrhage.

Dr. Joseph Zabramski, Bret's neurosurgeon, says:
“The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the…warning stroke; however we feel it is highly unlikely this is connected to the brain hemorrhage he suffered just a few weeks earlier. Once again, it is great that he quickly reacted to the severe numbness and got to the hospital immediately.....I realize Bret wants to make a full recovery so that he can be active with his family, attempt to attend the finale of Celebrity Apprentice and especially get back on the road to continue making music. Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100 percent recovery. Medically speaking it is a fantastic attitude both mentally and physically for him to have. However, Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.”

BTW: We hope he's well enough to appear on the Apprentice's "live" finale this Sunday to collect his winnings.
