In our world where magic is limited by reality, it is truly unique to encounter a miracle from time to time.
Sometimes they come when everything seems lost, teaching us that nothing in life is certain and that everything can change. This was certainly the case with the Siamese twins Abby and Erin Delaney, who were born in 2016, joined by the tips of their heads.
Medics then gave a 5 to 25 percent chance of survival, but they joined a lot of luck and the most modern medical technology to make a real miracle. And looking at these precious children a few years after this risky operation, it's hard not to smile & hellip;
The couple were very excited about the twins
Unfortunately, Heather's pregnancy turned out to be a difficult period & ndash; even more difficult when it turned out that the heads of her children were fused. When they got a message from the doctors, their future parents froze. & ldquo; We were stunned & rdquo; & ndash; Heather said.
Heather and her husband were still hoping. And their faith was rewarded when Abby and Erin were happily born by Caesarean section on July 24, 2016.
Abby and Erin were craniopagus twins, meaning they were fused at the top of their heads, making it much harder separation. Abby and Erin faced an enormous challenge as they were to be separated during a long and complex operation.
The procedure in June 2017 lasted over 11 hours and involved 30 doctors. But when all was said and done, a determined team of doctors was able to announce the success.
A year and a half after the risky surgery, the twins were living normal lives, and their parents could not be more proud of their c & oacute; rek.
Today girls lead a normal life, although they need rehabilitation.
