Josie Duggar Finally Home!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Josie Duggar is finally home! She was released from the hospital today. Born nearly four months ago at 25 weeks gestation, Josie Brooklyn now weights in at 4 pounds, 9 ounces. That may not sound like a lot, but for a preemie who entered the world at only 1 pound, 6 ounces, it's a miracle! Josie no longer needs oxygen 24/7, and her health condition is stable.

As you can imagine, the Duggars are thrilled! As Michelle puts it, "We are so excited, we are running on adrenaline. I have been getting into the routine of every three hours feeding, diapering and taking her temperature. We are so encouraged that she is doing so well."
Fans look forward to May 9th, when TLC will air "19 Kids and Counting" Josie Comes Home

So will the Duggars be leaving Little Rock?
Not quite yet. They plan to remain in their rental house at least until the end of April to have access to Arkansas Children's Hospital. Jim Bob and Michelle want to "be on the safe side." The family looks forward to returning to Springdale soon and wishes to thank the public for the prayers and encouragement that they have received.

What would you do to celebrate Josie's homecoming? What do you think the Duggars will do?

  4. Praise the Lord! What a blessing that she is finally home! I am so excited for the Duggars. Can't wait to see the May 9th episode.I am so thankful that you have kept us updated. As other Duggar fans would say, when the Duggars have opened up the doors to their home, you feel like family.


  5. Thank you very much for the information! My son has been watching since halfway through "17 Kids And Counting". He was as thrilled as I am. Unfortunately being just under 8 years old, it's hard for him to understand about "delayed broadcasting", LOL! It's also comforting to read something about the Duggars from a positive perspective. :)
