Bret Michaels still in critical condition, source of brain bleeding has “not been located”

Bret Michaels remains in critical condition today and is undergoing tests to determine the cause of the brain hemorrhage he suffered on Friday.

According to a message posted on his Facebook fan page Sunday:

“Bret remains in ICU in critical condition. He is under 24 hour doctors care and supervision. We are hopeful that further tests will locate the source of the bleeding, which has still not been located. As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc. will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal.”

An update this morning indicated there was no change: “As of now Bret remains in ICU under 24 hour surveillance. Further testing this week will help locate the source of the bleeding. Look for an official medical report from doctors this week at BretMichaels.com.”

At the conclusion of The Celebrity Apprentice 3 episode that aired last night, a brief clip of him walking was accompanied by a voice-over that said, “Everybody here at NBC wishes Bret Michaels a speedy recovery.”
