Honey Boo Boo’s dad Sugar Bear hospitalized with pancreatitis

Sugar Bear from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

We’ve just got some worrisome news out of McIntyre, Georgia. Mama June Shannon from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo just posted on Facebook that Sugar Bear has been hospitalized after experiencing chest pains on Monday. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis and held in ICU for the first night. He has since been moved out of ICU, but as June wrote, “he has a long road ahead of him.”

Here’s is June’s full post:

oh k cause everyone is talking and what our family emergency is well im going to go public so there will b no fake stories of what is going sugarbear was rushed to the hospital Monday by us cause he was having chest pains like gas pains well we get to the hospital and after tests we found out he has a severe case of pancreatitis which is inflammation of the pancreas and cause he is a diabetic type 2 pills only thats not good so he has been hospitalized under strict doctor care was in ICU the first night he is out of ICU but he has a long road ahead of him we have let his pancreas rest and his body rest tests r being ran everyday cause they dont know what is causing us cause normally causes it like gall stones alcoholism or high cholesterol and he doesn’t have none of these things so hope we get answers soon we r staying very close to the hospital in case he needs us thanks for all the thoughts ahead of time and i will update when i can… (June)

We wish Sugar Bear the best and hope for as speedy a recovery as possible! I’m sure it’s extremely difficult for him, and June, and the entire family, especially since Sugar Bear was just in ICU for an infection stemming from a 4-wheeler accident in September.
