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.┬áJep 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:
