Stacy Halstead wrote that Tripp was taken to the hospital on Monday after he reportedly had a low temperature. Doctors took x-rays and found pneumonia, so he was admitted so that strong doses of antibiotics could be administered through an IV, his mother wrote.

On Tuesday, Stacy provided an update, saying that Tripp slept well and that his temperature was rising.

"We are back on track," she wrote.

But on the other side of things, Stacy wrote:

"Now for the bad news. Tripp had another episode that looked like a seizure or stroke. His eye twitched and his face dropped and he was drooling."

Stacy Halstead credited her mother for quick actions after spotting the episode.

"She drops everything for Tripp and me," Stacy Halstead wrote.

Last month marked five years since the accident that changed the lives of the Halstead family.
