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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org….
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!
