Philipps explained that Birdie, who has been attending a boarding school in Sweden, was in Stockholm at the time, where there was close access to a local hospital, but that the event was nonetheless "chaotic." She added that it was "terrifying" as a parent to see her daughter without being near her in person.

"It was really awful seeing it like, on a screen, being in a different country, across an ocean," Philipps recalled.

The mother of two said Birdie previously had a seizure in March, and this second seizure was unexpected.

I confess that I did not know who Busy Philipps is. Even so, I can relate to getting a call that my loved one had a seizure in public while out with friends. Separately, I also know what it is like to have a family member in distress while visiting another country.

I hope Birdie gets the care she needs.
