Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" Back in the Hospital // Health Update on 05/31/13!!

(Originally written on 05/27/13): I learned on Facebook Saturday that Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, father of Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and reality TV personality on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," was complaining of dizziness and then passed out. He was rushed to the hospital early Saturday morning and they immediately began running tests on him. The family reported later in the day that the hospital was performing several "tests of his brain:".
Update on sugarbear he is still in the hospital they r running a lot of tests on his brain dont really what to say what they r thinking it is until we have all the test and final answers but it could b very serious do hoping things turn for the good he is in good spirit just one day at a time right now hope everyone is having a great memorial day weekend b careful out there #prayforsugarbear
The family reported yesterday that the hospital was still running tests on Sugar Bear, but hadn't come to a firm conclusion about what was going on with him.

It's not been a good year for Sugar Bear. First he was hospitalized last fall following an ATV accident that left him with severe leg injuries. Then in December the ambulance got called to his home after suffered a health scare related to a spike in his blood pressure. Most recently, he was hospitalized in February 2013 due to pancreatitis and pneumonia.

The family is requesting your thoughts and prayers as they wait to learn how to get Sugar Bear feeling better.

Updated on 05/31/13: Yesterday was busy due to some family celebrations, otherwise I would have posted this then. Mama June posted the following message on Facebook. The good news is that Sugar Bear is coming home. The bad news is that he's pretty much on bed rest:
Sorry we didn't update yesterday well sugarbear come home they did find out what is making him pass out so glad we have a answer but it does mean he will b home for a while to relax but he is hating it already and he said it's going to b hard from going from 7 days a wk working a real job to nothing but filming our show pray for him but hope he will b able to go back to work sooner then later cause that's means the girls and sugarbear r going to b here all summer omg pray for me MaMa June that I don't go crazy with everyone here Lol but I think I will b fine ...
The family is pretty lucky they have the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" income to fall back on. Most families get ruined financially when they have this many medical emergencies within such a short period of time.

I'm glad they finally know what's wrong with Sugar Bear and hope that there are good treatments.
