Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah, Head of the Multidisciplinary Team, stated today that 48 hours after their successful separation, the Moroccan conjoined twins Hafsah and Elham have now stabilized enough to have the artificial respirator removed. They are both breathing normally without any support.
It is worth mentioning that both twins have completely woken up from the anesthesia, opened their eyes and recognized their mother with a smile and a cry. As stated previously all vital signs including heart, lungs and kidneys are stable.
Their bowels have started to function gradually, and they are expected to commence bottle feeding within the coming day or two.
Dr. Abdullah Al Rabeeah also stated that the condition of their wounds and skin is excellent with no signs of infection or complications. Hasfah and Elham are expected to stay in the PICU for another week.
