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!
