The Bachelor and the Bachelorette couple Ryan and Trista “Rehn” Sutter opens up about Trista’s sudden health seizure on instagram.

A few days ago, the very first Bachelorette from 2003, Trista Sutter suddenly suffered a violent seizure in Croatia during her vacation with the family. It was a sudden shock to the couple and the family when Trista got that seizure in front of the strangers on a bus.

What happened?

The couple was on a vacation in Croatia with Trista’s family when she suddenly got a seizure without a definitive cause. They were supposed to have an adventure to one of the most beautiful National Parks in Europe but two hours before that she had the seizure and it was a chaos for the family. She suddenly started turning blue and she says she fell down on her daughter’s chest. We can understand how shocking it had been for the 8-year-old daughter to see her mother staring blankly far in the distance and turning blue. She was then rushed to a Croatian hospital.

What was Tristan’s thought?

The very next day after the seizure, Trista posted her picture on her Instagram saying how sudden and fearful the attack was. She says that it was as if she was in a white euphoric dream. Instead of being in the park in the next two hours, she ended being in a hospital. She had a question of why she was chosen to be like that for a while but soon she realized that she is a human as well and any human can be the victim of the seizure. She thinks of the day when her children will themselves turn into parents and someday her expiration death will follow. She concluded by thanking the ones who stayed by their side during the attack and helped her and her children to be strong. She thanked all the strangers from the bus, the family, and her husband. She promised to live a happy life with less stress in the future. She shared these thoughts by posting a picture of her before she had the seizure.

This was me yesterday. …two hours after I had a seizure. …two hours after I fell on my daughter's chest & she watched, along with her brother & grandparents, in confusion & horror as her mommy stared blankly off into the distance & started turning blue. …two hours after we were supposed to have an adventure. An adventure to one of the most beautiful National Parks in Europe. Instead, I ended up in a euphoric white dream that the voices of my husband and daughter pulled me from and I ended up in a Croatian hospital being poked and prodded and wondering "why me?" But today, I had to ask, "why not me"? I'm human. I have an expiration date. I've always envisioned that date being sometime after my kids have graduated college, met the loves of their lives and created families of their own, but I was reminded yesterday that it could come anytime, in any country, whether I'm surrounded by strangers or people I love, or neither, or both. I've never been perfect and I never will be, but from here on out, I vow to try my best to live this life to the fullest. To embrace gratitude and the lessons I wrote about over 3 years ago with a newly acquired perspective. To stress less. To love more. To listen. Be kind. Spread joy. To be a better version of myself as a wife, mother, sister, cousin, niece, aunt, neighbor, daughter, and friend. Thank you to those back in the states, whom I hold dear. You know who you are. Thank you to those I've never met who lift me up and have my back. Thank you to those from my #bachelornation family who've shown this OG kindness & respect when I know I'm old news. Thank you to the kind tourists & Croatians who held my hand, wiped my tears, and hugged my kids. You will forever be remembered. And lastly, thank you to my family, especially @ryansutter. Without you, I don't know that I would be here today. You are my everything and I love you forevermore. If you've gotten this far, know that I don't share these words for your pity, but to inspire you to take them and be thankful for your life and blessings. Tell the people you love how you feel and live with grateful enthusiasm. I plan to.

What did Ryan Sutter say?

After a few days of the incident, Ryan Sutter broke his silence as he posted a photo of his wife from the day after the seizure. He says that like the picture had been saved in the draft, his mind as well was confused as the picture was. He had had many situations to face emergency situations as a firefighter but this was his first time in 42 years life to have suffered from confusion and contemplation. He was grateful for all the people including his family, well-wishers and even the strangers for their help and love. He posted this picture of his love capturing a beautiful moment of life as she always did.

I've had this picture to post for a few days. I just haven't been sure what to say? Like my mind, the photo has sat as a "draft." In limbo. A bit confused. It was taken one day after my wife, unexpectedly and without a definitive cause, seized violently in front of her family on a shuttle bus full of strangers. In almost 17 years as a firefighter, my experience has trained me to address the immediate emergency. However, little in my 42 years of life prepared me for the confusion and contemplation that remains after the tide of immediacy has settled. . What has helped is the outpouring of kindness received from our friends, family and even those that we've never personally met. Without a doubt, you have been instrumental in the healing process and a humbling source of strength for @tristasutter and I. So, with that message, I post this simple picture . It's my wife – at her best- capturing life as she always has, though now through a more meaningful lens…
