    Rocker Bret Michaels has left a Phoenix hospital and is on his way to a better health after suffering a brain hemorrhage in late April, Michaels' doctor said Tuesday as he forecasted a 100 percent recovery for the former Poison frontman.

    Michaels, 47, left St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix and is now resting in stable condition, People magazine reportedDr. Joseph Zabramski announced at a press conference Tuesday.

    Zabramski did not disclose when Michaels left because of privacy laws but did say the "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant would make a full recovery and was improving each day.

    "He's improving and I expect him to continue to improve," Zabramski said.

    "I really expect that he will fortunately make a 100 percent recovery. He's just one of those lucky people -- 10 to 20 percent who make a complete recovery and can resume all of their normal activities," he said.

    Michaels checked into the hospital April 21 after a painful headache that eventually turned out to be a brain hemorrhage.

    Doctors also found last week that Michaels was suffering from a side effect called hyponatremia, which made the singer more vulnerable to seizures.

    It was unclear whether Michaels had returned home or whether he planned to return to "Celebrity Apprentice."
