Honey Boo Boo’s dad Sugar Bear receives “not a good” diagnosis from neurologist
          

Honey Boo Boo's dad Sugar Bear get well soon!

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s dad Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson visited a neurologist Monday after he apparently continued to have fainting episodes similar to the one that led to his hospitalization back in late May. Mama June took to Facebook to share the results, which don’t sound very good at all.

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…

The posting received well over a thousand comments, most of which sending their well wishes and prayers to Sugar Bear. Mama June later returned and thanked the fans:

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE THOUGHTS, PRAYERS, CONCERNS ETC IT TRUEL MEANS ALOT ALL OF US!!! WE WILL KEEP YALL UPDATED AS POSSIBLE AS WE FIND OUT INFO BUT DONT WANT TO PUT ANY WRONG INFO OUT THERE RIGHT NOW UNTIL WE KNOW MORE/ALL THE ANSWERS THANK U ALL FOR UNDERSTANDING! LIKE I SAID HES OK UNLESS HES HAVING A SPELL/EPISODE SO ITS NOT A CONSTANT THING GOING ON SO TO SPEAK SO HES OK RIGHT NOW AND WE WILL CONT DOING WHAT WE DO UNLESS THINGS OTHERWISE CHANGE!

She then updated on the family’s upcoming publicity tour:

WE’LL BE POSTING ALL THE DETAILS FOR THE MEET/GREETS AS FAR AS TIME/LOCATIONS ETC ANY DAY NOW JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE NOTHING IS GONNA CHANGE BEFORE WE DO!

If you want to see Mama June, Honey Boo Boo, Sugar Bear and the rest of the family, here’s the rough schedule of their appearances from an earlier Facebook post:

Oh k we have about finalized our meet and greet schedule is unfortunately we will only b going to two states mrytle beach and DC/maryland area cause the girls r wanting the first wk as family time so we will b in PCB June 30- July 6 and mrytle beach 6-9 meet and greet on the 7 or 8 and DC/Maryland 9-12 meet/greet the 10 or 11 and then me mama June will b in new York the 14-17…so my next question is there any h/m artist in SC near Myrtle beach available the 7 or 8 and one in DC/Maryland on the 10 or 11 that would not cost a arm and leg to do 4 girls thanks serious inquires email us at alanathompson31054@gmail.com….

It’s been a rough year for Sugar Bear health-wise. He was hospitalized a couple of times with a leg injury he suffered in an ATV accident back in September that later became infected. He was hospitalized again in February with pancreatitis that later led to pneumonia.

The health issues have been extra hard on Sugar Bear because he is used to working seven days a week and according to Mama June the down time drives him crazy. (You can click here to find out more about Sugar Bear’s job.)

Sugar Bear seems to have a huge heart and a lot of love for his family and I sincerely hope he gets well soon!

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returns for its second season on TLC July 17 at 9/8c with a special Scratch ‘n’ Sniff episode!

      If he is going to Jacksonville, it means the Mayo clinic. I got sent by my neurologist to the Mayo clinic because my condition was so rare the Mayo clinic was the only place that had anyone with knowledge of my condition. I sure hope it is not anything like ALS or MSA. As much as I’m not a huge fan of the concept of the show, if Sugarbear does have a serious condition, you know June will bring a lot of awareness to it.

      Not surprising considering what they eat. I almost vomited when I saw that she makes a sauce of margarine and ketchup. She is killing her family feeding them like that. Disgusting.

        What is disgusting is the fact that you have a pony as your avi and expect to be taken seriously.

        • Hayzii

          Taken seriously in what regard? I’m commenting on a gossip blog so if you take anything seriously on here you should rethink things. You are disgusted by my avi? Find another cause to get behind hun. Neeeeeeeigh.

        maybe she’ll improve things now that she’s moved on up like the jefferson’s. but, she’s so cheap, doubt she’ll want to change. she really IS giving them baaddd habits that will last a lifetime. perhaps short lifetimes. yeah, so, that “we’re poor” excuse is out the window now. no reason why they can’t learn about healthy diets, get more fruits and vegs, heck, even hire a healthy chef. she is so cheap, it’s gonna kill ‘em all.

      I was thinking possibly MS. Hopefully it is treatable! I like Sugar Bear and the family. Regardless of what they eat. Even people that eat healthy and exercise can be affected with chronic illnesses. I’m sorry but when you are poor, you make what you have stretch. And no matter what…some are. My Mother was a home health nurse for many years. I have met many people living in dirt floor houses that are cleaner and healthier than the well to do. So don’t be quick to blame his health issues on butter spaghetti. Get well soon Sugar Bear!

        i read what mama had to say and she mentioned looking for h/m artists or something like that, “serious inquiries……” she’s hiring for something but i can’t understand her at all. what’s she talking about? seems to have been something for the girls, think she mentioned the 3 girls. i’m really curious. naturally, i’m hoping for the best for sugie. sometimes, he seems a little “tetched”, but he also appears to be a truly sweet person, and you gotta love that !

      Get well soon, Sugar Bear!

      this man seems to truly love his family. what’s not to like about that? he seems genuinely kind and sweet. i like him a lot. Mama should be nicer to him, dammit !! what a shock to see on the net that he has a criminal past of arson and robbery !! i hope that’s just some B.S. I can’t picture him doing either of those things. and what IS an h/m artist? and what is she hiring one for? did you see that tuna casserole? yeeesh. if they’d improve their hygeine and their eating habits, they’d be a perfect family. i wouldn’t mind being a member. they have fun, they’re happy, they care about each other, they’re “real”……hell, my family is a bunch of skunks, and they’re not any of those things. but this crap about making a meal of gummy bears and cheese balls has got to stop. can’t nobody be that stupid in 2014. that’s unhealthy eating, stop it!! and obesity is NOT cute. also, i often wonder what life is like for Anna — that is a really pretty girl who is in the midst of some not so pretty people. it must be weird for her. like cinderella. too bad she’s just about retarded, but she is very good looking.
