Alaskan Bush People: Billy Brown Sounds Out of Breath?

Alaskan Bush People star Billy Brown seems to have trouble catching his breath in a quick glimpse or two during the new season’s episodes. It’s not like he makes an effort and then appears with difficulty breathing. No, he sometimes seems to be out of breath despite little or no effort.

Billy Brown was sick and he underwent “major surgery,” according to his son Bear Brown. But that’s about all the information that has been passed on to fans about the health fight for the Alaska Bush People celebrity.

In the new season’s episodes, hints emerge that Billy Brown might still struggle with health issues. However, it seems that both Billy Brown and Discovery Channel can play it in front of the cameras.

Alaskan Bush People: Billy Brown Sounds Out of Breath?

It’s now January of 2020 as more of the new Alaskan Bush People episodes roll out. But what viewers see today filmed months ago. That’s back when Billy Brown was still struggling with his health problems. He was taken from their mountain to the hospital because he had trouble breathing.

Bear Brown, one of the sons from Alaskan Bush People, hopped online to tell the fans Billy Brown was sick. But again, he never gave details about his father’s illness.

This season the father of the Brown wolf pack is back. As he sees a bulldozer running and fluttering around various locations of the mountain farm, clues emerge suggesting that Billy Brown is still not quite healthy.

But viewers didn’t see Billy jump up on that bulldozer or make his way to those locations. So far Billy, apart from moving the controls of that bulldozer, doesn’t show up in action scenes.

But, it wasn’t all that long ago that the doctors were unsure of Billy Brown living on that mountain in the near future. Looks like Alaska Bush People’s father defied the odds. He got his mountain house in time to film the new season.

In a few of the scenes, Billy Brown sounds like he’s short of breath when talking to the camera. Don’t forget, the kids had to move Billy Brown and Ami Brown’s camper to get back to the mountain. This is their home on the mountain. At one point, he was too high up.

The camper originally sat at an elevation with less oxygen. So to make it easier for Billy Brown to breathe, his Alaska Bush People offspring had to drag it down a few thousand feet. This puts Billy at an altitude where the oxygen is not so thin.

Moving that camper entailed a rather dangerous drive down a muddy mountain road. But it seemed that the adult children of the Alaskan Bush People did this as an act of love for their father.

Alaskan Bush People: Recuperation of Papa Brown

When Bear first notified the Brown family social media followers that his dad was ill, he said he was facing major surgery. Then the fans heard nothing new about Billy from anyone in the family.

Finally, Bear updated fans saying his dad was still having “major medical issues”. He also shared that Billy had surgery. Bear Brown didn’t give any details about Billy Brown’s diagnosis or the surgery.

Billy’s health issues remain a mystery.Very little is known about Billy Brown’s diagnosis and treatment.

But when the new season of Alaskan Bush People rolled out, Billy Brown showed up. However, he’s not as present on the show as the fans have seen him in previous seasons.

Alaskan Bush People: Billy Brown Keeps Details Under Wraps?

When Billy Brown does talk, he sometimes sounds like he’s almost out of breath. He also doesn’t seem to do much by the way of physical labor. The children of Alaska Bush People seem to do most of the work to get the ranch ready for the family.

That’s nothing new when it comes to the father of the Brown tribe and manual labor. It seems he tends to behave like a foreman when projects arise. In Alaska he often watched the Browntown family build up.

But as usual, this season Billy Brown did show up offering ideas and suggestions. He even operated the bulldozer to bring home Bear Brown’s storage container. It seems the fans are watching as the patriarch of Alaska Bush People recovers from his recent health scare.

Are Billy Brown and the Discovery Channel cameras hiding the full extent of Billy’s illness? After all, he started filming not long after the operation, which Bear considered to be “major” at the time.

From what the earlier reports on Billy’s health indicated, it looks like the doctors didn’t expect him back on the mountain so quickly.But Papa Brown marches to a beat of his own drummer. So he probably recovers at his own pace too. Anyway, the fans were happy to see both Billy and his wife, Ami Brown, back on Alaska Bush People this season.
