That is really scary. I know Duck Dynasty is really polarizing for some people. I personally have been a fan of the show for years, because of my husband. I am not a fan of hunting, but I think this family is very funny. Also not a fan of bigotry, but to each his own, I guess? Anyway, despite how you feel about the family, this is a pretty scary situation, especially since Jep Robertson remains hospitalized.
“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,” a rep for the A&E star tells Us in a statement.
“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,” the statement continues. “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 was a little bit lighter with the news on his Twitter feed:
“Well, I about died this past Sunday…I’m doing much better now,” he wrote. “Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuresuck #gladtobealive.”
Hope he gets better soon.
