The surgery “went very well” and was as successful as the team “could’ve planned for,” Dr. Oluyinka Olutoye, a pediatric surgeon and co-director of the Texas Children’s Fetal Center, said in a video on the hospital’s Facebook page. He added that they “were blessed that this was the best case scenario.”

The 7-hour-long procedure last month required about 75 medical professionals with various specialties and several months of planning, the video said. This was the hospital’s fourth time performing this type of operation.

The girls shared a liver, diaphragm and pericardial sac and their hearts were connected by a large blood vessel, the video said. Both are expected to have more operations in the future but doctors said they should be able to live normal lives.

The Richards family, of north Texas, first found out about the girl’s condition in a routine ultrasound during their mom’s pregnancy, officials said. Born in December 2016 as preemies at just more than 35 weeks, the girls weighed a combined 9 pounds, 12 ounces.

“We’ve thought about and prayed for this day for almost two years,” the girl’s mother, Jill, told KHOU 11. “It’s an indescribable feeling to look at our girls in two separate beds. We couldn't be more thankful to the entire team at Texas Children’s for making this dream come true.”

Book donations in NICU help parents and preemies bond .
Like many families with babies in the NICU, the Currans felt overwhelmed. A book helped soothe them and their twins. Nothing prepared Kara and Brad Curran for seeing their twin sons in the neonatal intensive care unit after they were born early on March 3 at just 32 weeks gestation. The constant beeping of medical equipment and whir of people rushing in and out of their Pittsburgh hospital room felt overwhelming and strange."They told us to prepare for it and we didn't. I don't think you can," Kara Curran, 33, told TODAY.
