    Bret Michaels Rushed to ICU with Brain Hemorrhage

    Bret Michaels's health has taken a turn for the worse, PEOPLE has learned: After an excruciating headache late Thursday night, the star was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem), according to a source close to the situation.

    Michaels, 47, is currently in critical condition. "After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation," the source says.

    The rocker's latest hospital visit follows his emergency appendectomy in San Antonio, Texas, on April 12. There is no word yet whether this new development is related to the rocker's recent appendectomy or to his diabetes.

    After his appendectomy, Michaels remained in the hospital under his doctors' care then transferred to a rehab facility specializing in diabetic patients.

    As he was recovering, Michaels who was still in the running to win this season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice seemed to be in good spirits and updated fans on his progress.

    "They told me that if I had gone on stage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died," he wrote in a note to his fans. "There is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts."

    well that's not good. Not a fan or a hater but no one should suffer that, get well soon, Brett.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    Damn, he seems to be a mess. And only 47. Hell I am 47. I hope he recovers.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I was never a Poison fan but for some reason I really like Bret Michaels. I hope he recovers from this. We need another Rock of Love.

    He drives me crazy with his motor mouth on Apprentice and his Wilford Brimley pronunciation of diabeetus. But, I wish him no harm. Poor guy.

    I'm not particularly a fan, either, but I do hope he recovers from this.
    My younger brother had an excrutiating headache one weekend last spring and after finally going to the ER because he couldn't take the pain any longer, he was diagnosed with the same exact brain bleed that Bret has.
    My brother did recover with no lingering problems, but it was horrifically scary for a while and very touch and go. Terrible stuff.

    I don't think he takes care of himself. Diabetics shouldn't drink like he does. Regardless, I wish him a quick recovery

    I was all ready to post about how I hope he gets better, then I see the GIF. Now how can I properly post about how bad I feel for him as I'm laughing? Y'all bitches are mean!
