“Alaskan Bush People” star Billy Brown is still fighting for his life in the hospital, and his son just told fans that the situation has gotten worse.
Bear Brown gave an update on Sunday evening to the ongoing health complications for the patriarch of the Brown family.
“My dad’s still having some major medical issues,” Bear explained on a video posted to his Instagram account.
He also revealed that Billy, “got out of surgery the other day.”
Bear said there were still lots of tests for Billy to undergo, so the family is sticking around in town until those are completed.
No longer living in Alaska, the Brown family relocated to a rural area in Washington after their mother, Ami, was diagnosed with cancer.
Billy wanted to build his family a homestead off the grid in Washington, still trying to bring to fruition his Alaskan dream, but he unfortunately fell ill.
A medical emergency on the Wolfpack's ranch threatens the family's way of life.
