On Friday, 10th October, 2003 @ 1500 hours, Talia and Taleen were discharged from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) to Ward 7 (Pediatrics), in very good and stable health. Their hemodynamic status was excellent and even Taleen’s heart continued to be stable, in spite of the hole between her ventricles (VSD). Their respiratory and kidney status is stable and they started to drink their regular artificial milk normally. Their interaction with their parents is very good and their activities have returned to normal. Also, the wounds of both twin are clean and there is no indication of any infection. Their intra-venous has been discontinued, except for Taleen, who continues to have prophylactic antibiotics because of her congenital heart status. The twin will now be exposed to an intensive physiotherapy and rehabilitation program for the coming two (2) weeks, and thereafter, they may be ready for discharge home.
