Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Sugar Bear Won’t Lose His Leg

September 21, 2012 10:10 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

Okay, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo daddy Sugar Bear will not be losing his leg. Yeah, we know you were worried. Following a mud bogging accident and a nasty infection, Sugar Bear had to be carted off to the hospital. But doctors have “redneckognized” that the pageant daddy’s infection is not bad enough to require amputation.

The Thompsons may be gullible folks, but they certainly know when medical intervention is a necessity. Sugar Bear’s leg became infected in the aftermath of a mud bogging accident — and the infection was further complicated by the fact that Sugar Bear is diabetic. Many a diabetic has had to have a limb amputated due to untreated infections, so it’s good to know that June Shannon was smart enough to get Sugar Bear in to the emergency room. Once he was admitted, doctors conducted a debridement. This procedure involves removal of infected tissue, but fortunately, not the entire leg.

June Shannon told TMZ that the doctors have predicted a full recovery, and that any rumors of an upcoming amputation are “100 percent not true.” Best of all, Sugar Bear can return to work (and presumably, mud bogging) in a month! But this probably won’t be the last injury, knowing all the craziness that goes down in the Thompson household. After all, Sugar Bear is an adventurous dude, legs be damned.

What crazy activity do you think Sugar Bear will take part in first once he has full use of both of his legs? Feel free to share your predictions in the comments section below!

    Speedy recovery to you, Sugar Bear, and God bless! You and your family, while often amusing, always seem to really care about each other!

    I am glad Sugar Bear is not losing his leg…but maybe they will learn from this reprieve and message from God to control their diet…..This is not a good show…this is making fun of a family…there must be a lot of money offered to make your family the brunt of jokes…

    First, glad to hear all is well with Sugar Bear. And as Elizabeth said, the family members all seem to truely care about one another, something I wonder when I watch other pageant contestants and their parents. Lastly, June and Sugar Bear are not married, June will not get married :)

    Unfortunately, diabetes is probably in Honey Boo Boo’s future, as well, unless a better diet is acquired. I love carbs like pizza and pastries just like the next person, but they wreak havoc on the human body…here’s hoping the family will make some healthier changes.

    This show is so terrible. This little girl is quickly losing her cuteness and turing into a overweight sassy mouthed trashy child like her sisters. The show is absolutly the worst thing I have ever seen. I watched one episode and was completely with out words. They are a disgrace to themselves and others. The body noises not to mention the terrible habbits and manners. Total white trash I mean hello Mama admited to having 2 children by the time she was 17 with different daddies. The one daughter is expecting one and she is not even a leagal adult. Why would TLC show these people.

    Well, congrats to Sugar Bear for avoiding an amputation. But if Sugar Bear is diabetic, he better let up a little on the sketti! Not in the diabetic’s handbook! Best wishes from CA.

    Amazing how this article refers to their intelligence the entire article. They will apparently make over 40,000 for 10 episodes though June says it’s more. Probably is. They want 10K per episode for the 2cd season.

    Not too stupid are they? I find the stupidity of TLC’s cameraman at a higher level for letting a little girl sit for two minutes straight with snot mashed into her face and not A.Stop filming or B. Give her a tissue. Who IS this cameraman, I doubt he has the balls to come forward publicly. I would sue him AND tlc for doing that to my child , I hope June does.

    How about actually being a real FATHER and yanking his bratty kid off the air and sending her off to public school?

    What crazy activity do you think Sugar Bear will take part in first once he has full use of both of his legs?

    Answer: He’ll go right out there and vote for Romney just like every other redneck.

    TLC needs to CANCEL this show.

    It isn’t entertainment, but instead is the exploitation of an innocent 6 year old little girl by her disgusting, ignorant family who doesn’t seem to have a clue about good manners, etiquette, or the fact they are being made a mockery by TLC for a few dollars!!!

    There is no way in hell poor little Alana is EVER going to win a “Grand Supreme” title at one of those goofy pageants. Someone needs to inform her family of how those pageants really work because they obviously don’t have a clue. It is so unfair to that precious little girl and she is going to be very hurt and ridiculed by other children at school. Very sad!!!

    Sorry to hear about Alana’s father getting injured.

    However, TLC should be ashamed for exploiting this poor family who doesn’t seem to understand they could be harming their 6 year old by allowing her to be seen on national telelvision with their disgusting behavior.

    I enjoy watching this family. I think each member is a true kindred spirit. I hope that all the fame does not change them. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Sugar Bear.

    I too saw the episode with the “snot and spit”!!So angry with everyone for not editing this and now feel family is simply being made fune of by the network.

    I find this obese family to be most unpleasant. I do not watch them nor follow them, but when they stumble into my presence via a commercial or random cyber encounter, such as this, I vomit a bit and curse them with much fervor.
