China's passing isn't the only bad luck the family has experienced in the last few weeks.
Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson was recently rushed to the hospital after collapsing and, according to the show's fan page, he underwent "a lot of tests on his brain" while there.
However, Sugar Bear is apparently going to be just fine.
"Sugar Bear is home & doing ok we are glad he's out the hospital & to have a diagnosis thanks for all the prayers & concerns!" Alana tweeted.
