Seizures at Sea?

Age 56 and had a surprise seizure (on land). I'm coming to terms with this, but looking for advice on how this should affect my sailing.

Obviously that's single-handing out for the time being, if not forever. Fortunately I can always sail with crew competent enough, and need not take the helm. We always don life jackets when underway (it's simplest that way).

So, should I not sail at all (modern 36 foot sloop)? Sail (not now until April 2010 season anyway), but always hooked on?

Should a seizure at sea be Panpan'd?

Any experience / advice welcome.
