Sugar Bear had to have surgery over a small infection that was caused by a "mud-boggin'" crash. One of the Thompson's favorite things is riding on four-wheelers and driving them through the mud - mud-boggin'.

He is the father of Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), the series star and a 7-year-old "beauty queen." He is also married to the coupon queen, Mama (June). June took to Facebook to update the world on the beloved Sugar Bear.

"Well we got more awesome sugarbear is able to come home today woohoo so we r mcintrye bound now will b so glad to b home," she wrote.

Earlier in the day, she wrote about the incident.

"Sorry I didn't update everyone after surgery but it was a very stressful day with everything going on the surgery went great the irrigated the knee it was the start of a small infection but they caught it early which was good got the echo results back this am its was good but now today he will have a scope down his throat to c behind the valves to double check to make sure no infection there," she wrote.

The hour-long season finale airs at 10 p.m. EST Wednesday.

Not to be cold-hearted or mean-spirited, but the excerpt from her (sorry, what's her name ... aka HT) made me cringe as it does not possess a single comma(!), until the very end (and it may not be in the original). Not to be the grammar police (or someone who says Not to be a lot), but her stylistic flair is really...idiosyncratic, I am finding.

Once could only hope it would've been the entire family to get hurt. Oh well, here's to hoping it'll happen eventually!
