Julie sent pictures of the dining room where she slept after five inches of sewer water flooded their bedroom.
The Pringle family waited all night to hear the news. Her husband says Julie remains upbeat despite her ordeal.
"I think it's gonna be like coming back from a camping trip. You know, the first thing you're gonna want to do is find a shower and find a hot meal," Chuck Pringle, Julie's husband said.
Julie is flying back from New Orleans on Friday and is expected to be home either Friday night or early Saturday Morning.
