On last night’s episode of 19 Kids and Counting, Jim Bob and Michelle had the scare of a lifetime when baby Josie was rushed to the hospital while they were out of the country!

Miracle baby Josie Duggar, who was born three months early in December 2009, has struggled to survive over the past year. And on the June 14 episode of 19 Kids and Counting, the thought-to-be thriving Josie gave the entire Duggar family a BIG scare. “Josie spiked a high temperature,” Jim Bob said.  “She had a seizure and it lasted for a long time.” Oh no! 

Since Jim Bob and his wife Michelle were in El Salvador at the time, sister Jill had to take little Josie to the ER. “There is nothing to do and we feel totally helpless,” Jim Bob said., with Michelle adding, “I was shocked and I was in tears.”

Michelle prayed over the phone, “Father, we ask that you would give doctors wisdom to find a cure for little Josie.”
