Bret Michaels’ sister Michelle rang into the Todd N Tyler Radio Empire, a syndicated radio show, Wednesday for an exclusive interview, updating listeners on the condition of her beloved brother.

Michelle shared that she spoke to her brother and that he sounds “good” going on to declare his survival as a “miracle”.
"One thing we've learned through all of this is that we have a lot of friends,” Michelle said. “I can't say a ton, but things are definitely looking up.
“He's still in ICU, still in critical but stable condition. I did have a chance to speak to him and he sounded like Bret. He sounds good.
“The truth is I think he'll outlive us all. He seems to be really very lucky. The fact that he survived the initial rupture is a miracle in itself. He's very fortunate. I've never known anyone to dodge so many
bullets both literally and figuratively.
“And when it comes to the rumors surrounding Bret’s condition, Michelle was quick to shoot down any connection to partying. “I heard one guy on the news say that this happened to Bret because of
all the years of drinking and drugging. Ya know what? Bret doesn't do drug. And the drinking is very minimal. The man works out every day.
“He eats right. He's very health conscious and he's very aware of the fact that he's a juvenile diabetic.
“In my opinion I believe everything is going to turn out okay. I can't get into it a lot, but I think good news is right around the corner.
“He's doing good. He's not by any means out of the woods, but he's getting better every day.
“I spoke to him briefly and he sounded as good as someone can when their brain is throbbing. He was very coherent and he knew what he was saying.
“I overheard a guy in a bar the other night say, ‘It couldn't have happened to a bigger as***le.’ I let him know he was talking about my brother. Bret and I are very close. We've always had each other's backs and you don't mess with family."
Meantime Bret’s camp also remain optimistic that the former Poison front man will make a full recovery. At 4:01, the following was posted on Bret Michael's Facebook and Twitter Page:
