“Ugh. Evan had a seizure,” Jenny wrote. “We r in the ER. He’s doing better. Just laying next To him. Could use prayers again right about now.”
The next day she updated fans and friends: “Up all night. Evan Still battling 103.5 fever. Thanks for well wishes. they were nice to read at 3 am. Kept me company. Xxoo.”
Thankfully, Evan seems to be on the mend – Jenny has since Tweeted a photo of him digging into a big bowl of pasta!
This isn’t the first time that Evan has suffered a seizure. They were an early indicator that led to his eventual autism diagnosis when he was 2 years old. Jenny has since become a very vocal autism advocate, and stirred some controversy with her claims that her son has been “cured” of the disease.
