Bret Michaels had surgery on Monday to repair a hole in his heart in an operation that had been planned for some time.
“Bret Michaels underwent a successful heart procedure today at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix,” the hospital said in a statement. “Michaels is currently recuperating at St. Joseph’s where he remains for observation in ICU.”
The hole in his heart was discovered last May, after Michaels, 47, suffered a mini-stroke.
Michaels has had his share of health problems since earlier last spring, beginning with an emergency appendectomy in April, followed soon after by a life-threatening brain hemorrhage.
Michaels, who got engaged to his long time love Kristi Gibson in December, said last month that about the impending heart surgery “I gotta tell ya, I’m very positive, I feel positive they’re going to do an amazing job. They’ve done thousands of these operations.”
Best of luck with your recovery Brett.
