Bogart the Explorer is in the Hospital, Asks Everyone to Pray for His Recovery

Oh, no! Bogart the Explorer is in the hospital… and in diapers.

The foodie and overall explorer posted a photo on Instagram a couple of hours ago of himself on a hospital bed with the caption,” I was born in a time where most parents used the ever tipid LAMPIN instead of the convenient diaper on their babies. Well, you know what they say, AGE is only a number.” In true Bogart fashion, he makes light of the situation with hashtags like “catheters are necessary evils”, “big baby”, “these things are really comfy”, and “I wipe my own butt, thank yuou very much”.

In a previous Instagram post, Bogart shared how he came to be at the hospital in the first place. Apparently, he was involved in a freak surfing accident over the weekend where the impact was so strong, his surfboard’s fin broke off and cut his right leg. “The main vein in my right leg was cut but missed my main artery by 1cm,” he shares.

I was involved in freak surfing accident over the weekend. My surfboard's fin cut my right leg. the impact was so strong, the fin broke off. I lost a ton of blood and meat. The main vein in my right leg was cut but missed my main artery by 1cm. I will be needing multiple operations of reconstructive surgery and skin grafting, blood transfusions and physical therapy to be able to walk again. I am stable now and i ask that you pray for my recovery and I thank everyone's support especially those who've been critical to my survival at this point. To the folks at Gran Ola, Lianga District Hospital, Docs Mauro and Harry at San Francisco Doctors as well as the nurses and ambulance drivers who have been absolutely amazing. To all my family and friends, thank you so very much. You give me strength to fight through this especially my loving wife Jeanette and daughter Music. I love you both so much. I am now in Davao awaiting for more operations. This too shall pass.
