Bret Michaels is receiving outpatient care after being hospitalized for what doctors called a warning stroke.

His publicist, Joann Mignano, gave no other details Friday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

Mignano previously confirmed Michaels had been diagnosed with a patent foramen ovale, or hole in the heart.

Doctors said the condition is operable and treatable and likely unrelated to the brain hemorrhage he suffered last month.

The 47-year-old, rocker-TV reality star was hospitalized this week after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly in his face and hands.
