    As for Bret, I can say ( ) that I've been in his apartment (sadly though, when he wasn't in it). The main things I remember about it was that it was on the top floor with vaulted ceilings, VERY modern and contemporary, and all of the furniture was black, grey, and white, with framed gold records on the walls .

    Decent guys, though, if you can get past the groupie-worship and their enormous egos (and the alcool and drugs - good god, the alcool and drugs). At one point they were trying to hook me up with Bobby Dahl, and I wasn't having any of it as I was convinced I would catch some disease .

    Good times back then, though. Lots of interesting memories.

    I remember reading "I'm With The Band" and wanting to be Pamela Des Barres. I thought it was so unfair that I was born in northern Canada when it was my destiny to be a groupie.

    What's taking so long to find the source of the bleed? The longer it takes, the worse the prognosis? It just seems that they should have located it by now.

    I know very little but I would think that if an area of his brain is covered in blood then it would be very hard to see where the bleeding is coming from. The only way would be to go in and clear the area of blood and see where new blood is coming from. This may not be possible where the hemorrhage is located.

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta, (neurosurgeon) said on CNN last night; that because of the probable location, they wait to see how much healing/improvement occurs naturally, before intervening. Surgery may still be an option. He said that it was a hopeful sign that Bret had regained so much function; but, that the next month would be crucial in determining his recovery/prognosis.

    Ah, poor The Donald. He seemed to be posturing to take this story to the top of the ratings. Of course Trump didn't want the worst for Bret, but the businessman in him was ready to make some hay. The longer Bret's prognosis was dim, the better the prognosis for The Donald's show.

    But, seriously, whew. VERY glad to hear that things are cautiously optimistic for Bret.

    Condition "Deteriorating;" Michaels to undergo surgery

    Bret Michaels' family gave a disturbing update on the rocker's condition to ETOnline Tuesday morning stating that the 'Poison' frontman's condition is "deteriorating" and that he's scheduled to undergo surgery to attempt to reduce the swelling around his brain.

    I wish him the best of luck and hope he is able to pull through this.

    I watched a few live Poison videos online last night and I've gotta say, he really is a great showman.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    I keep checking for updates on all of the entertainment sites...but I'm afraid of what I'll see.

    I've been humming "Something To Believe In" all day. With a little bit of "Unskinny Bop" and "Talk Dirty To Me" thrown in to make me feel better.

    From ABC News online:

    Bret Michaels Suffers From Another Malady

    An already ailing Bret Michaels has been diagnosed with another medical malady. After suffering a brain hemorrhage last week, the audacious 47-year-old glam-rock reality TV star has developed a side effect that causes seizures, according to a statement posted Tuesday on the former Poison frontman's website.

    The condition, called hyponatremia, stems from a lack of sodium. The statement did not indicate if Michaels had actually suffered any seizures.
    From Wikipedia:

    Hyponatremia

    Damn it Bret, I want you to live. I've tweeted and Facebooked everyone for prayer requests. Can we blast out those of us on FB and TW? Please.....

    I'm hoping for the best, but, fearing the worst.

    OMG. It just goes from bad to worse. I am praying for his family and him. He's such a genuinely nice guy. But, he's been through so much. I just hope his body can hold up.

    After seeing how he has given his all on so many tasks on the Celebrity Apprentice, I have been very impressed with what a creative, caring, congenial person Bret Michaels is. I am deeply saddened by his succession of recent severe health problems and hope for a miracle that helps him reach a full recovery.

    For those interested in keeping up with news about Bret Michaels' condition, his facebook wall is being updated daily by "his" people - in part to keep his fans (and others) informed, but also to debunk a lot of the speculation and rumors printed by the media.
