Chief Justice Roberts Hospitalized

Chief Justice Roberts had a seizure on Monday, which caused him to fall at his home in Maine. He suffered minor scrapes and was taken to the local hospital to be treated and will be evaluated overnight. Thank God the seizure wasn't more severe, I have seizures and they can be very unpredictable! Currently he's not taking any anti-seizure medications, but I would definitely recommend it. He had a similar occurrence in 1993 and it was deemed " isolated". The scary part about seizures is most of the time there is no reasoning behind them, no neurological evidence that gives certainty to the doctors of why something is happening. Sometimes seizures can derive from head injuries, strokes, mental instability and many other causes, but most have no precursors. I hope he gets a clean bill of health and a prescription to return home.
