    Formerly conjoined twins Angelica and Angelina Sabuco has been recovering from the separation surgery and should be released from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital later this week, hospital officials announced Monday.
    “Angelica and Angelina are doing great—sleeping in separate beds, eating their favorite foods, and even taking their first steps,” said mother Ginady Sabuco. “For the first time, our girls will be going home in two separate car seats."
    Doctors at the hospital said the little girls have been making steady recovery since their surgery
    "We're very happy with their progress," said lead surgeon Gary Hartman. "Their liver function is normal, they’re no longer on pain medication, their appetites are growing; they’re almost ready to go home."
    After the 10-hour surgery on November 1, which involved nearly a year of careful planning and involvement throughout the hospital, the identical twin sisters spent 6 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
    Angelina was eased off of her sedation first, and then taken off a ventilator after 48 hours. Angelica followed closely behind, and was breathing on her own after 72 hours. On November 7, the sisters were strong enough to graduate from intensive care to a regular hospital room, where they have been continuing their recovery. more at link: http://www.ktvu.com/news/lifestyles/medical/formerly-conjoined-twins-preparing-go-home/nFc4x/

    It’s a whole new world of discovery for Angelica and Angelina Sabuco – formerly conjoined twins who were separated by 10 hours of delicate surgery in November – are enjoying their new independence, hospital officials said Thursday.
    The girls were joined at the chest and abdomen, with livers, diaphragms and breast bones all fused. After a year of detailed planning and preparation, a medical team numbering some 40 members took part in the complex surgery at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.
    “They have really bounced back,” said lead surgeon Dr. Gary Hartman. “Each time I see them in the clinic, they are more mobile and better adjusted. It’s been a very smooth recovery.” more at link: http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/healt...onjoined-twins-enjoying-life-their-own/nMjRy/
