With the season finale of The Celebrity Apprentice a mere day away, Bret Michaels looks forward to attending the live broadcast of the show on Sunday night to compete for the title – though his main concern continues to be his health.

As Michaels works to regain his strength after suffering several recent scares – including a “warning stroke” and a brain hemorrhage – the musician, 47, is careful not to take any “undue risks” with his recovery process.

“Bret is a very passionate person and refuses to live his life curled up in a ball wondering if or when something else might happen,” the rocker’s spokesperson Janna Elias said in a statement posted to Michaels’ official Web site Friday.

“No doubt these recent medical complications have been tough but he wants to continue to live his life, enjoy every day and get back on the road.”

Michaels, who plans to travel to New York City for the finale, is currently taking daily injections of blood thinners while his doctors continue to closely monitor his condition.
