Duck Dynasty star Jep Robertson has said that he thought he “was a goner” after suffering a seizure a few days ago.

“I reached to get my bow and that’s kind of the last I remember,” he told ABC. “I just crumpled to the ground and they said I had a seizure for like five minutes.”

He was hunting deer with friends in a wooded area in Louisiana on Oct. 19. And as a result of being in such a remote area, it took EMTs about two hours to get to him.

He’s been in an intensive care unit since then.

“The time I remember is Thursday — waking up Thursday, looking around, asking Jess, ‘What are we doing in the hospital?'” he added. “I had no idea what had happened four days before.”

Robertson said doctors don’t know what happened to him.

“They think it was mix between meningitis and encephalitis,” he said. “For the last month, I’ve mispronounced words and I didn’t know why I did it, but I think it was leading up to the seizure.”

He was discharged from the hospital Monday.

“Well, I about died this past Sunday…I’m doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuresuck #gladtobealive,” he tweeted.
