(Newser) – Bret Michaels feels “lucky to be alive” after spending 10 days in ICU, and talks to People about his recovery—and how his brain hemorrhage affected his life. His two daughters were first and foremost on his mind, and he’s thinking about marrying their mother. “What I want to do is make a positive bucket list and say, 'I'm just gonna go for it,’” he says, and getting married “may be one of the big things on the list.”

“I'm a believer it's a combination of will and good faith,” Michaels continues. “Will—and good medical attention—and faith. It just wasn't my time yet. I really believe that.”
