What happened to Jenson Button’s son?

Brittny captioned the shot: “The Button family didn’t have the best Halloween.

“Poor little Hendrix ended up having a febrile seizure Saturday afternoon after a sudden spike in temperature. We would like to bring more awareness to febrile seizures, they are much more common than we realized.

“They often happen to infants when there’s a sudden spike in temperature and it’s the body’s response trying to regulate itself.”

Brittny went on to instruct parents on what to do in a similar situation.

She continued: “If you don’t know, when a child is having a febrile seizure it’s best to keep them cool as possible and DO NOT cover them up.

“It’s also best to lay them on their side so they don’t choke on their saliva. Hendrix is doing much better today and is seemingly back to his playful self.

“Thank you to everyone who helped us in this scary situation and everyone who reached out making sure he was ok.”

Fans rushed to show their support on the post.
