“The Challenge” Star Nelson Back In The Hospital Again

Nelson the challenge

MTV’s “The Challenge” Star Nelson Thomas is currently recovering from a bad car accident that went into flames!

The accident hurt Nelson so much that he’s currently dealing with in and out visits to the hospitals months later.

Back in April, he shared:

“I want to thank everyone that kept me in their prayers. I was so scared and nervous today. Going into surgery and being under anesthesia is scary. This has been really hard for me mentally and physically but I appreciate all the DM’s and text messages❤️. My major surgery went really well. I’ll be in ICU for a couple of days and I’ll be in the hospital for about two more weeks🥺. I’m going to stay positive.

Being stuck in one spot has really made my head spin. Every day is different. I go through every emotion. Embracing every thought when it comes and goes. I’ll never take so many things for granted again. The little things matter. They can be gone in an instant. I love everyone and I’m grateful for the future 👍”

Things were looking up as he was seen walking earlier than the doctors said but it looks like he’s back in the hospital:

One comment under the post stood out:

We hope Nelson gets better!
