Bret Michaels Back In Hospital With Hole In His Heart

Poison front man and "Celebrity Apprentice" finalist Bret Michaels is back in the hospital.

Michaels suffered what doctors are calling a warning stroke after the singer complained of numbness in his face and arms. After a series of tests, doctors discovered Bret has a hole in his heart that needs to be addressed.

This disorder is referred to as patent forum ovale. The condition is corrected with surgery and drug treatment using blood thinners. The hole was discovered after an ultrasound of his heart.

Michaels is still determined to return to his band Poison later this year for a reunion concert, and is in the running in Donald Trumps "Celebrity Apprentice". The finale airs this Sunday.

Bret suffered a massive stoke last month and doctors have said his recovery to date has been remarkable.
