Jep Robertson of Duck Dynasty Suffers Seizure While Hunting
Jep Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” recently suffered a seizure while deer hunting, he revealed on Saturday. “Well, I about died this past Sunday,” he tweeted. “I’m doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuresuck #gladtobealive.”
The youngest of “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson’s children, Jep was stricken while in the hunting stand with friends and his brother Willie. Robertson was rushed to a local hospital, where he’s remained to undergo testing. Doctors are treating him with antibiotics in case an unidentified infection caused the seizure. There is no permanent damage or paralysis.
An official statement from a rep for the Robertsons reads: “Jep was rushed to the hospital and received immediate treatment. He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital for additional tests and observation, and he is being treated with antibiotics to cover a range of possible infections believed to have caused the seizure. Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support and ask that you keep Jep, Jessica and their children in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
Jep recently supported his niece, Sadie Robertson, for one of her “Dancing with the Stars” performances. Gossip Cop will have updates on his health.
