Baby Josie Duggar is back in the hospital.

The preemie -- who weighed just 1 lb, 6 oz. when she was born in December at 25 weeks -- was "readmitted to the hospital on Thursday, April 8 at 3 a.m. with minor stomach issues," her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, tell UsMagazine.com in a statement.

Add the parents, "We realized early that it would be a long, unpredictable recovery, which is why we opted to stay in Little Rock close to the expert staff at Arkansas Children’s Hospital." (The family's home is in Springdale, Ark.)
