Earlier Tuesday, Michaels' father Wally Sychak told Extra about speaking on the phone with his ailing son. The former Poison frontman and Rock of Love star "sounded a little slow, but fine," Sychak said.

"He understood what he was saying and knew me. Everything seemed good that way...They say he's moving his arms and hands," he says. "The best as they could expect at this time."

The medical team looking over the musician and reality star have yet to determine what caused the bleeding at the base of Michaels' brain stem.

His rep noted on Monday that "doctors are seeing all the tests, hoping the worst is over."
