http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28472480/ they think he had a seizure and hit his head in the bathroom but apparently he had almost died from Kawasaki syndrome when he was little and i know on tv they said sound people had rumored he was autistic but Scientology doesnt recognize nor treat it so they never stated it.. so sad he was only 16! wasnt it the Bahamas when anna nicole smith's son died when she gave birth? bad luck for celebrity sons it seems i may not like john travolta as a celebrity but i do feel bad for his family and loss.. no one should have to lose a child

very sad.. even sadder is that the boy, if hed been treated by a medical doctor instead of praying to some alien clams, prolly wouldve been fine. ;sigh;

so i did a bit of reading on this, which i usually dont since i avoid the news like the plague. and according to reports etc.. they did have this boy on medications for the seizures and werent neglective in it as id previously thought due to the alien clam cultist tradition. what i also read tho, was that the boy, who was sposedly never without a nanny despite his age because of his history of seizures, went into the bathroom at some point on thursday.. and wasnt found until late morning on friday. ;sigh; so while the travolta`s themselves (according to the reports) did everything possble to tend to their sons well-being.. even employing a constant companion on the off chance hed suffer a siezure.. said "companion" dropped the ball a little bit and left the boy on the floor of the bathroom for an entire day before he was discovered by some caretaker. id be gutting that "companion" like a fish right about now.

I read about it as well in the local papers. John Travolta is denying that his son is austic. Like you said, it is sad for any parent to lose a child. I sure hope his son can rest in peace. Tragic, to have to lose his life at such a young age.

That is sad to learn. I heard this on the BBC World Service this morning, and it was a shocker. All unexpected deaths are shockers, and I'm sure they occur every day. Those left behind are ll in my prayers. Again, it's just so sad when something like this happens, regardless of who a person is.
