Much buzz has been surrounding the littlest star of the Duggar family, as Josie Duggar has been having some medical issues that have been playing out in the tabloid headlines. The star, who has suffered from seizures in the past, made news last year when she was rushed to the hospital after experiencing a terrible convulsions. While little was known about the 5-year-old's health following the incident, Jim Bob and Michelle focused on their youngest child's health during the most recent episode of their TLC reality series, 19 Kid and Counting.

According to Radar Online, this past week's episode revolved around the story that caused a media frenzy a few months ago. The scary moment happened while Josie's 24-year-old sister, Jana, was babysitting, when Jim Bob and Michelle were away in Chicago.

Josie’s favorite song is "Jesus Loves Me" and her favorite food is macaroni and cheese. Read more about Josie and our girls in the Family Scrapbook on our website here:

During the episode, Jana explained how the events transpired, stating that her and brother James were watching Josie and when she didn't respond to their questions and started convulsing that they immediately knew she was having a seizure.

"She didn't really respond," Jana told the camera during her confessional. "[She] was just kind of sitting there staring and then started jerking. [James] know immediately, OK, that's the sign of a seizure."

Us Weely reported that Jana recalled her sister turning blue as she waited for the paramedics to arrive to the scene.

"She was starting to turn blue and purple," Jana explained. Luckily, the paramedics rushed the youngest daughter to the hospital, where she was taken care and ultimately was released after her fever broke.

Jim Bob also spoke out about his daughter's situation, saying that it was definitely "life-threatening," adding, "I'm so grateful to God that Josie's okay."
