Bret-michaelsLess than 10 days after an emergency appendectomy, Bret Michaels is hospitalized in critical condition due to a brain hemorrhage, People reports.

The rocker and "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant, who is also diabetic, was rushed to a hospital Thursday night with a severe headache. According to People's source, doctors are still trying to determine the cause of the hemorrhage.

He had an appendectomy in the wee hours of April 12 after first thinking he was suffering a bad bout of flu.

On his blog Wednesday, Michaels described what it felt like to have his appendix rupture, called the surgery a "wake-up call" and discussed how alcohol consumption is different for diabetics.

"I need to find something healthier to do on my day off then going out and finding a club to go hang out at," he wrote. "It’s part of finding balance in my life."
