Your episode does sound like VV. Good idea on having further testing done. VV sometimes mimicks seizure. Lots of people have been misd-diagnosed with seizure disorder, when in fact it is vasovagal syncope. Two other tests that are very good to determine VV are the tilt table test and a thirty day event monitor. Come back and keep us posted.
