Keep those prayers going for Jep Robertson. He’s not out of the woods yet.

On Saturday, I reported on how the youngest son of ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson had a major seizure during a deer hunting trip.

Jep let fans in on the medical emergency with a Tweet:

The hashtag “glad to be alive” certainly got the attention of fans and readers, who sent prayers and well-wishes for Jep’s recovery.

The reality star’s family released a statement to E! News, saying “Earlier this week while deer hunting, Jep suffered from a seizure. Thankfully, he was in the stand with friends, and [his brother] Willie was at the hunting camp when it occurred so he was by his side in a matter of minutes.”

Now we have an update on Jep’s situation — still in the hospital for treatment — along with some new photos. A family statement read:

“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,” it continued, not citing the cause of the seizure.

It sounds serious, and fans remain concerned. Jep hasn’t lost his sense of humor, though, and posted a picture on Twitter of him posing like actor Steven Seagal in one of his movies.

And from his lovely wife Jess:
