Michelle Sychak, Bret Michaels’ sister, called into the syndicated morning radio talk show, the Todd N Tyler Radio Empire, Wednesday morning to talk about Bret getting out of the hospital but not being out of the woods just yet, and Radaronline.com has the details.
Michelle says: "Good news! It was shocking because I really didn't see that happening. He's doing really well. I mean, he sounded great. I could tell, you know I think that Barrows Institute is great, but when you think (and this is kinda what I was saying on CNN) about what was around him, he was doing so much better than most of the people that are in there. Imagine if you will you're in a ward where you've survived this brain injury and you're feeling pretty good and you're yourself and you can walk and talk and you can do all those things. and then everyone around you or most of the people around you are either in a coma or maybe a vegetative state or they're just nowhere near the level, you know what I mean? And just, I think it was very difficult for him to see that every day, and he said it just was so depressing and he really pushed to be transferred to you know someplace with I think people that were in the same level of mindset as he is...."
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Michaels was rushed to the hospital last week after suffering a brain hemorrhage which left him with slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness as a result of the bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
Michelle goes on to share the good news that Bret is no longer in the hospital, and is currently in another rehab facility...
"...To try to sort of get himself back to normal. And I think the next step is home, and I don't think that will be too long down the road. I think he'll do better in a little bit more upbeat, I guess is the word I would use...I talked to my Mom and Dad, and we're all planning our trip out."
"Brett is just chomping at the bit to get back out.... the doctors never did find the source of the bleeding. He's not out of the woods probably for six months."
Michelle says that everyone in the Michaels family is really excited, and that she and her sister are planning to travel to go see Bret in a couple weeks.
