Five months after the risky surgery, both girls are thriving and were sent home to North Carolina, just in time for Thanksgiving.
This surgery is extremely rare and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has only separated 24 sets of conjoined twins since 1957.
As they mature, the girls will require additional surgeries, but their medical team is optimistic about their futures.
“The team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has become like family,” Heather said. “Riley and I are so grateful for the care our girls have received here and so excited to take them home — just in time for the holidays.”
Congratulations to the family! Enjoy the holidays.
