MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Conjoined twins from Nigeria have been separated after a lengthy operation at a Tennessee hospital.
Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital spokeswoman Anne Glanker tells The Associated Press that Miracle and Testimony Ayeni were separated during an 18-hour procedure at the Memphis facility on Nov. 7 and 8.
The girls were conjoined at the lower half of the body.
The family has another reason to celebrate – Wednesday is the girls’ first birthday.
