There have been a few blog comments that when Jim Bob and Michelle go visit Josie they seem to almost be in denial over the fact that their newborn could have serious problems for the rest of her life. They just visit her as if they are visiting any other newborn baby. Michelle is quite emotional, but that is more the emotion of a mother who is unable to be doing the mothering--watching nurses do the things that she as a mother feels she should be doing. Jim Bob stands proudly over his newborn daughter smiling. And because they are just smiling are bringing comments that they are completely in denial.
I don't think they are. Why? Because I know the look on Jim Bob's face, because it's a look I wore for the two weeks I too walked into a NICU to visit my daughter. It was the look of someone who had the complete faith in G-d. Someone who knew that someone else held all the cards and someone who was completely and totally confident. Instead of walking into the NICU and crying, wishing that I had a baby I was taking home with me, I walked in and smiled, cooed, rocked her in the rocking chair, sang to her, and knew in my heart that Hashem knew what was best and would send her home when she was ready to come home. Those of us with faith wear that confidence proudly and I see that confidence on Jim Bob's face every time they show him visiting the NICU to see Josie.
They know full well how Josie is doing; they talk to her doctors daily and get full updates. They are not flying blind on this. If Josie has any health problems, they are fully aware of what they are. Of course she may have some that could come up as she gets older, and her doctors will let them know what those could be, and prepare them for what to look for, and so I'm sure they will be fully prepared by the medical staff before Josie is released. Babies are just released from the NICU without complete and total instructions.
My child was born in London, UK and they actually had us spend the first night in the hospital with her in a special suite before we took her home. That way we got used to how to care for her and we had people to ask in case we had questions. Then the next day they sent her home with us. How they send home NICU babies in the US, I have no idea, but I'm sure they will be giving the Duggars a complete and total list of what to do, what to look for, and what to be aware of.
So no, I don't think they are glossing over any possible future problems Josie may have, I think they just have complete and total confidence in G-d and the medical staff they've entrusted with her care.
