Honey Boo Boo’s father Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson is currently recovering from surgery after a nasty “mud-boggin’” (a.k.a. four-wheeling) accident.
While some media outlets reported that Sugar Bear was in danger of losing his leg, his longtime girlfriend June “Mama” Shannon set the record straight in a Radar Online report.
“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,” said June. “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.”
Sugar Bear has now been in the hospital for over a week. June tells Radar Online that her baby daddy is “recovering very well,” but she did say he’s been a “big baby” during his recuperation time. While daughter Honey Boo Boo and the rest of the fam have visited him in the hospital, the time away from home has reportedly been tough on the papa.
Get well soon, Sugar Bear!
