The breakout stars of the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo had a recent scare in their family, as the patriarch Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson is now recovering from a four-wheeling accident.
Sugar Bear was in the hospital getting treated for his injuries for over a week, and Toddlers & Tiaras star Alana Thompson’s father is “doing better now,” according to June “Mama” Shannon.
“He is doing better. He’s recovering very well,” Shannon told RadarOnline.
Wet Paint reports that some media reports stated that Sugar Bear had lost his leg, or would be getting it amputated but Shannon denied those rumors.
She continued, “He is not getting his leg amputated, what it was he had a four wheeler wreck a couple weeks ago and his leg was badly bruised. Well the wound that was on top they said it would drain, and on Saturday they said it was healing but it wasn’t healing as well as they would like so they put him in the hospital to give him antibiotics on IV.”
Shannon also added, “Today when they took the wound wrap off of him they were very satisfied that all the infection was gone and he was on the way to recovery.”
But Alana’s father is a “big baby,” says Shannon, who explained “Sugar Bear is a big baby, when he gets hurt he’s a big baby and he likes us to stay and when we have to leave he doesn’t like it.”
