    Doctors Successfully Separate 4-Year-Old Twins

    SALT LAKE CITY Doctors successfully separated 4-year-old twin sisters born fused at the midsection, with just one kidney and one set of legs, and were continuing with reconstruction surgery early Tuesday.

    Kendra and Maliyah Herrin were separated after nearly 16 hours of surgery at 10:50 p.m. Monday, which was about an hour earlier than had been expected. Ten minutes later, Kendra was moved to a separate operating room and the single surgery became two separate procedures

    I surely hope that both girls survive. IMO, the risk is worth it. They will now have a chance to live normal lives.
