After several hospitalizations and a stint in the Intensive Care Unit all within the last 10 months, Honey Boo Boo’s dad Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson has received some bad news about his health.
After further testing to determine a diagnosis, the family took to their Facebook page this morning to tell fans that the outcome is not good.
The post is as follows:
“Well we went to the doctor not a good report :( we will b headed to Jacksonville Florida in a few wks to get more results and c what the long term plan will b for sugarbear like I said I'm sorry right now don't want to share the diagnosis until we get all the information like we said b4 he is being and acting normal unless he has a episode.. so we r having fun as a family and yes we r still going on our meet and greets to mrytle beach and DC/Maryland and he will b with us...”
Most recently, Sugar Bear was hospitalized at the end of May when he suffered a dizzy spell and subsequently fainted. At the time, the family alerted fans that doctors were doing a lot of testing on Sugar Bear's brain and that it “could be very serious.”
But that was just the latest in a string of health problems for the patriarch over the last several months.
Last September, Sugar Bear was hospitalized for a foot infection that resulted from a mud bogging accident. Three months later, an ambulance was called after he fell ill during a holiday toy drive. And in February, he was hospitalized and placed in the Intensive Care Unit for Pancreatitis.
Sending well wishes to the family.
