Bret Michaels continues to recover from his emergency appendectomy procedure last week, but the rocker-turned-reality star said things could've been a lot worse.
"I have played concerts with broken bones, extremely low blood sugars, the flu, colds, and all kinds of things before. I tend to try to perform at all costs. But, I knew I was really sick this time when I started throwing up that morning and didn't stop all day. I just didn't realize how bad it was," Bret wrote on his personal blog on Monday.
After feeling ill prior to his scheduled concert at Sea World in San Antonio, Texas, last week, Bret said he knew something was wrong, but he still wanted the show to go on.
"After the [surgery], they told me that if I had gone onstage like I wanted to, it likely would have ruptured and I could have died. Not good," he continued.
Now that he is out of the woods, thanks to the quick work of his doctors, who he noted "performed emergency surgery right there in the middle of the night," how is the former Poison frontman recovering?
"I've been spending my time in the hospital watching 'Modern Family,'" he revealed. "It is the best new comedy out there."
Bret has also managed to keep his "Rock of Love" outlook while he's on the mend, adding he has some easy-on-the-eyes assistants helping him out.
"And yes there are hot nurses taking care of me, in case you were curious. I mean, come on, every man has the nurse fantasy don't they?" he wrote.
