Bret Michaels continues to recover from the flu and complications caused by his diabetes. 

Guitarist Pete Evick said in a weekend website post that the Poison frontman wasn't able to return to the stage Saturday in Albany, New York as the singer had hoped.  Pete explained that Michaels was determined to play the show, and it took "a team of doctors, friends and family to convince Bret to not return to the stage." 

Evick added that for most non-diabetics battling a flu this severe their recovery would likely include a week off work, so for Michaels to think he could be back in action in just two weeks was "pretty crazy."  But Pete said he had "no doubt" Bret would be "up and running at 100-percent soon."  He also expressed confidence that Michaels will be able to resume his tour in St. Louis, Missouri on June 13th as scheduled. 

Michaels' latest medical drama began last Thursday.  His blood sugar plummeted during a show in New Hampshire, forcing him to end the performance after just three songs.  Bret also missed Friday's concert in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 

The singer previously suffered a series of health setbacks a few years ago, including an emergency appendectomy and a brain hemorrhage.  Michaels has lived with type 1 diabetes since childhood.
