Bret is out of the hospital and no longer in critical condition. He's now in stable condition at an undisclosed location. The doctor said he will continue to monitor Bret's condition every two weeks - and would advise him against doing any work for at least four to six weeks. As you know, Bret wants to start touring again in three weeks.
Bret is very physically fit. He doesn't smoke. The doctors are "pleased they can't find the cause of the illness." He may have residual problems with backache and headache. 95% of patients with this type of brain bleed recover fully. The doctors will do another 3D magnetic angiogram before giving permission to go back on the road. Doctor was very concerned first few days Bret was in hospital and confirmed Bret had slurred speech.
Doctors didn't open his head or occlude a blood vessel. Basically, Bret is very, very lucky and is making a miracle recovery.
The hit in the head at the Tony awards did not cause the brain bleed. Nor did Bret's diabetes nor his recent appendectomy.
According to doctors, Bret isn't at a greater risk for a new bleed than any of us. In fact, Bret's condition was random - and could strike any of us equally.
Wherever Bret is, he's not alone but no one would confirm if he's with a medical team or just family.
For what's it worth, the doctor seemed a little confused on dates. He did stress Bret was admitted with the bleed on April 22, 2010.
