Karen Davila took to social media to post a terrifying but inspiring story about her 18-year-old son, David.
KAMI learned that Karen and her husband had to rush David to a hospital after he suffered a seizure.
According to the newscaster, David had a seizure while greeting his parents at the lobby of their condominium.
Fortunately, David was able to recover from the seizure and that his memory and mental faculties were not affected. He is still being monitored so that doctors can figure out how to prevent him from having a seizure again.
Karen also explained that aside from this recent episode, David, who has autism, also had a scary seizure when he was just 7 years old.
“Yesterday afternoon, my husband DJ & I arrived from an overnight trip to Sorsogon. Our son David welcomed us at our condo lobby... when out of the blue, he just started having a full blown seizure!
“Now, seizures can be common for kids with autism but David has never really had them. He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old.
“Thank God for my husband & the first responders of our condo lobby. They were fast thinkers, equipped to assist & knew what to do to make sure he would stay alive. And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David.
“And this is why I am sharing this. I thank our Lord Jesus Christ for saving David yesterday. David slowly woke up and we rushed him to the ER. I thank God his memory and faculties are perfect.
“I thank Dr. Francis Dimalanta, his pedia with autism expertise. Doc Francis recently survived COVID19 & he shared that all he could do during his darkest times was call on Jesus too.
“David is OK now and undergoing a 24 hour video EEG which helps monitor brain movement. Our goal is to prevent this from happening again,” Karen posted on Instagram.
