“Michael was in Vancouver participating in a Battlestar Galactica convention, and at dinner following his day’s work, he fell and hit his head. Hard,” Hogan’s wife Susan said in a statement shared on the page. “He went to bed that night not realizing that the impact had caused a massive brain bleed. He was unable to be woken the next morning and was taken to Vancouver General Hospital and emergency surgery performed. It took 57 staples to close the part of his scull [sic] they had to remove in order to reach the damage.”
The actor suffered “complete paralysis on his left side, memory loss, cogntivie [sic] impairment and an inability to swallow” in the days following the February accident.
