Duck Dynasty's Jep Robertson was hospitalized over the weekend after he suffered a seizure while hunting deer last week. Jep was with his brother, Willie, when the epileptic fit occurred. The 36 year-old 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 is being treated with antibiotics to cover a range of possible infections believed to have caused the seizure.
"Earlier this week while deer hunting, Jep suffered from a seizure. Thankfully, he was in the stand with friends, and Willie was at the hunting camp when it occurred so he was by his side in a matter of minutes.
"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 tweeted Saturday: "Well I about died this past Sunday. ... I'm doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers!"
Jep is the youngest son of Phil Robertson, the star of the hit A&E series Duck Dynasty. He became known on the show for filming and editing the family's hunting exploits. He gained an interest in hunting and other outdoor activities as a child in the Robertson family.
