RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Separation anxiety aside, the twin girls recovering from a rare surgery in Richmond have made significant progress in a short amount of time!
Up until two weeks ago, the 19-month-old girls were joined at the lower chest and abdomen.
Maria and Teresa are in the pediatric ICU progressing well according to their lead surgeon two weeks after their separation surgery. Today we got to meet them both in person.
Little Teresa blows kisses from her hospital room, where she's learning to do a lot on her own. Last Thursday, she took her first steps.
"She's a lot bigger than Maria and she's been walking with some assistance, crawling all over the place," said Rocio Watson with World Pediatric Project.
Across the hall, her sister, Maria, is already a technology magnet.
