Lil' Wayne Rushed To The Hospital After Another Seizure!!

Filed under: Lil WayneHealthScary!

lil wayne rushed hospital another seizure

Oh, no!

Lil’ Wayne reportedly spent the night in the hospital after suffering yet another seizure! Taken to Cedars-Sinai by his bodyguards late last night, the rapper was quickly looked after and released earlier today.

This isn’t Lil’ Wayne’s first hospital visit. Just over a month ago, the epileptic rapper spent a week at the Los Angeles hospital due to an onslaught of seriously jeopardizing seizures. He was even placed in the ICU!

We’re glad to hear he’s ok! We just hope he takes it easy for a while! Your health comes first, Weezy!

P.S. Sizzurp wasn't involved this time, right?!

Lil' Wayne Says He Has Epilepsy, Avoids Obvious Sizzurp Questions

Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteLil WayneHealth

lil wayne epilepsy seizures sizzurp purple drank tour rest

We feel weird saying 'sizzurp' because it's such an absurd word, but it's basically cough syrup mixed with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The codeine will get you high, and it's addictive.

Lil' Wayne says his seizure had nothing to do with an addiction to this, but is in fact epilepsy.

Here's what he said, after saying he was back to 100%:

peter andre coffe house award epilepsy intern amazing opportunity

Mmmm coffee!

Magical. A great business. What's not to love??

When it comes to coffee, little did the world know that Peter Andre would be opening a cafe chain called The New York Coffee Club with his brother Danny… and they're doing much more than slingin' joe!

They've taken on an intern that might not have had many other opportunities, and they're being honored for it! You see, their intern has epilepsy — and The Young Epilepsy Champion Awards has singled the brothers out for helping him! They were given the Employability and Enterprise Champion 2013 prize, and Andre and his sibling were even there to accept it!

Here's what he said:

Kelly Osbourne's Seizure May Be Indicator Of SERIOUS Condition! Sharon Speaks Out!

Filed under: Kelly OsbourneSharon OsbourneSad SadHealthScary!

kelly osbourne epilepsy

Poor thing!

Haven't she and her family been through enough?!

As we've reported, Kelly Osbourne has been in the hospital ever since falling ill and suffering a seizure during a Thursday taping of Fashion Police, and while doctors have been hard at work since, attempting to figure out exactly what caused the fit, sources close to the situation reveal that it could be much more serious than what anyone initially anticipated!

Sadly, medical experts believe that the reality starlet may be suffering from the neurological disorder epilepsy, which is defined by brain alterations that result in the individual being prone to numerous recurrent seizures. Doctors will be running tests while she remains in the hospital for a few more days, but thankfully, there's still a possibility that this was an isolated episode.

Meanwhile, Kelly's mother

Boy Raises Money For Seizure Alert Dog!

Filed under: InspirationHealthPetsCuteness!Dog

Evan Moss is a nine year old boy suffering from 10 minute long seizures.

The seizures started when he was one month old and doctors performed surgery on his brain at four years old, but the seizures returned two years later.

Now Evan has his pooch, Mindy, a dog who alerts the family when Evan goes into epilepsy.

The Moss family raised tons of money to get the trained doggie, driving from Virginia to Ohio to get her.

Now every time Evan has a seizure, Mindy is the first to know, and alerts Evan's parents.

A true lifesaver and a best friend!!!! Watch the video (above) now!

Q&A: My Dog Has Seizures

Filed under: Q&AHealthDogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Dr. Patrick Mahaney

Having a pet is a big responsibility. Having a pet with a disability is a HUGE responsibility.

TeddyHilton.com reader, Jen, wrote in to Dr. Patrick Mahaney:

Hi Perez and Teddy- I read your blogs daily so I thought I'd write in to ask your pet experts a question. Before I ask, I i just wanted to stress that we have very good vet and neurologist. Buster is a 2 year old Cocapoo who has epilepsy, specifically idiopathic epilepsy. I'm 35 and this is my first pet and this whole situation is all very new to me.

Buster is on meds and they seem to work, but are you aware of any other ways to help with canine epilepsy?

Thank you very much.

Dr. Patrick responded:

Hello Jen,

Thank you for your readership of TeddyHilton.com and PerezHilton.com. We appreciate concerned pet owners, especially ones like you who are willing to reach out to discuss pet health.

Seizure activity can happen in dogs both young and old. In younger dogs, the diagnosis is typically idiopathic epilepsy, which is manageable with medication.

Besides medication, I'm pleased to hear that you are taking a holistic approach to managing Buster's seizures. I take this approach with my patients and employ Chinese medicine food energy treatments to "cool" the internal heat that often leads to seizures. Feed a moist (not dry) diet of whole food ingredients (meat, vegetables, grains). Cooling protein sources include turkey, duck, rabbit, and fish. Cooling carbohydrate sources include potato, brown rice, and barley. Cooling vegetable sources include spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, and cauliflower.

Do your best to reduce any source of inflammation or infection in the body. The mouth is a dirty place chock full of bacteria, which can cause gum inflammation and infection in other parts of the body. Keep Buster's mouth as clean as possible and have regular cleanings through your veterinarian if needed.

Reduce stress, exposure to extreme temperatures, and vaccinate judiciously. Consider performing antibody titers (blood tests) to see what Buster's levels are before giving him a vaccination to which he may already have adequate immunity.
Feel free to reach out to me through my website, www.patrickmahaney.com, to have further dialogue.

Thank you,

Dr Patrick Mahaney
