Bret Michaels back in hospital, suffers 'warning stroke'
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bret Michaels is receiving outpatient care after being hospitalized for what doctors called a "warning stroke."
His publicist, Joann Mignano, gave no other details Friday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Mignano had earlier confirmed that Michaels suffered what doctors call a "warning stroke" and has been diagnosed with a patent forum ovale, or hole in the heart.
The 47-year-old rocker-TV reality star was hospitalized after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly in his face and hands.
Doctors said the condition is operable and treatable and likely unrelated to the brain hemorrhage he suffered last month.
