Josie Rushed Back to Hospital

Hello readers! Here's the latest Duggar update. Josie Brooklyn Duggar went home last Tuesday after spending the first four months of her life in the NICU but was rushed back to Arkansas Children's Hospital last Thursday at 3:00 in the morning.

After being home for just a couple days, she developed some "minor stomach issues," report Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. She suffered constipation, which the doctors believe was caused by the fortifiers added to Michelle's breast milk to help Josie grow stronger. Her vital signs had begun to drop, but she is now in a stable condition at the hospital.

"Dr. Arrington told us to never trust a preemie," explained Jim Bob. "That is really true." Dr. Robert Arrington is Josie's doctor and the co-director of the NICU at Arkansas Children's. 
Josie is doing great, and the Duggars hope to have her back home later this week.


  1. Little Josie and your family are still in my prayers.

  2. DR.Arrington is a great Doctor, he was one of my sons doctors when we were there (ACH) for 2 months..if anyone can figure it out I know he can... Josie and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
