Michaels' hospitalization was his third in recent months, following a brain hemorrhage on April 22 and an emergency appendectomy 10 days earlier.
"He is up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive," Janna Elias, Michaels' rep, said on his website Thursday, "but he has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again."
