SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KOVR) – Nearly two months after their marathon separation surgical procedure, two previously conjoined twins headed home from a California hospital for his or her first Christmas at home.
Prayers have been answered for the Miroshnik household Wednesday, an early Christmas reward, as twins Abigail and Micaela left UC Davis Children’s Hospital. The women have been born linked at the top in late 2019, a situation so uncommon that it occurs in solely about one in each 2.5 million births.
“We’ve been praying for this day, and praise God, it’s here,” mom Liliya Miroshnik stated.
The 11-month-olds had been recovering at the hospital since they have been separated in a 24-hour surgical procedure in late October.
“I think it’s the best present of my life to be home with them, my healthy, nice and beautiful girls,” Miroshnik stated. “Two babies, it’s very exciting. It’s a huge blessing.”
Hospital workers, lots of whom have cared for the women for practically a 12 months, have been there to provide the household a send-off.
“You got to be a part, really, of a miracle here at UC Davis. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” stated medical nurse specialist Dawn Harbour.
Surgeons say the twins are wholesome, and their futures are brilliant.
