    it must suck to have to do this


    it's so sad what happened to him


    Seizures prescribe a brutal existence and one can neither know nor judge unless one has lived through the life and death of profound seizures and autism. If you have, then you will not care to judge, rather only hope that the quality of life was profoundly good, as it seems to have been.
    I hope their family is not further tormented, but left in peace.


    From what I know, the child had been on anti-seizure meds and they had stopped working. Those meds can be VERY brutal on the system, and sometimes not work at all, or the side effects are worse than the actual seizures. SUDE. Sudden Unexplained Death by Epilepsy. Very sad. My heart goes out to them.


    It's a shame that Jett Travolta died, and that there may possibly have been an extortion plot. However, why is John Travolta not called to testify why his son was not on anti-seizure medication and only now is he admitting his son suffered from Autism?
