So scary. Jep Robertson revealed he was put on life support for four days after being hospitalized for a seizure. In fact, the ‘Duck Dynasty’ star thought he was going to die.

Jep Robertson told Good Morning America that he thought he “was a goner” after suffering a seizure during a recent deer hunting trip on Oct. 19. The Duck Dynasty star was put on life support for four day after being hospitalized.

On a positive note, Jep, 36, is now safe and healthy, he revealed during his interview on Oct. 29.

“I reached to get my bow and that’s kind of the last I remember. I crumbled to the ground and they said that I had a seizure for five minutes,” the A&E star said, recalling the events leading up to his frightening health scare.

“I thought I was a goner,” he added.

It was previously reported that Jep was being treated with antibiotics for a possible infection which could have caused the seizure, but that’s not true, the reality star said.

“Waking up Thursday, I was looking around and asked [my wife] Jess, ‘What are we doing in the hospital?’ I had no idea what had happened four days before,” he added.

After waking up, Jep updated his fans on Twitter.

He even found some humor in the situation.

Jep is the youngest of Phil Robertson‘s four sons. He and wife, Jessica Robertson, have four children together.

We’re so happy to hear Jep is doing better, but our thoughts continue to go out to him and the rest of the Duck Dynasty family at this time. We’re certainly hoping for a speedy recovery.
