The smaller twin, Abdulrahman who was slow to recover was removed from the artificial respirator two days ago. His twin brother, Abdullah is breathing normally without the need of external oxygen.
The vital organs of both twins are stable and both twins are now active and interacting with their parents and the hospital staff.
Abdullah is now on full feeding by mouth and feeding tube, whereas Abdulrahman has just started today to be fed by tube.
It is expected that both twins will require another 10 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
