Looks like the unhealthy lifestyle is starting to catch up to Here Comes Honey Boo Boo dad Sugar Bear. Just a few months after being hospitalized for an infected foot, the famous dad is back — this time with pancreatitis.
Ever since Sugar Bear was rushed to the hospital on Monday, the rumors have been flying non-stop. Mama June decided she’d had enough of the gossip and thus, logged into Facebook to give fans the scoop. She worried that people might start spreading fake stories about what was going on with her baby daddy.
The initial visit occurred as a result of Sugar Bear’s chest pains. “Sugar Bear was rushed to the hospital Monday by us cause he was having chest pains like gas pains.” After several tests, Mama June learned that her beau was suffering from a severe case of pancreatitis, otherwise known as inflammation of the pancreas. The situation is complicated by Sugar Bear’s diabetes, which is why the famous dad has been hospitalized and is being kept under close observation.
Sugar Bear has officially been released from intensive care, but sadly, that’s where the good news ends. Right now, the focus is on determining the cause of Sugar Bear’s pancreatitis. “He has a long road ahead of him…we have let his pancreas rest and his body rest tests [are] being ran everyday cause they dont know what is causing [it].”
Normally, the cause of pancreantitis is something along the lines of gallstones or high cholesterol, but surprisingly, neither of these are problems for Sugar Bear. He’ll undergo further testing to determine the cause, and until then, Mama June says her family will be close by in case they’re needed.
We hope that an answer is found and that Sugar Bear feels better soon!
