Mike ‘Sugar Bear’ Thompson, of the TLC‘s hit reality show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ is reportedly battling a neurological disorder that is affecting his brain.
Mama June Shannon revealed on Facebook Monday that she and other family members are staying at a hotel in Jacksonville, Florida while Sugar Bear undergoes a battery of neurological tests at the Mayo Clinic.
She posted, “Have to go back for more tests today and we will be here all week to run tests and more appointments to get the right diagnosis and treatment. Will update more later.”
June added, “He’s having spells where he passes out and we don’t know the cause & medications aren’t helping. We are all nervous to see what will be done with everything. Will update when we hear something #nervous and #hoping for the best.”
Sugar Bear’s mystery illness began in May when he was first admitted to a Georgia hospital for fainting spells. June asked for prayers at that time while they awaited test results and later indicated they would be heading to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville for more testing.
The family traveled to Washington D.C. in July, as evidenced by the above photo that June shared via Twitter.
