Millions of people have seen Jadon and Anias McDonald, Craniopagus twins with head fusion, endure the most difficult 27-hour separation procedure in 2016.
The boys were 13 months old at the time. How do Siamese twins feel and develop today?
Conjoined twins Jadon and Anias were born in September 2015. There is no other way to explain what happened to them other than a miracle.
The very fact that they held out for 13 months is astounding.
However, an even greater miracle was performed by American medical personnel in separating the children. The entire process took 27 hours.
The surgeons encountered some difficulties at one point because the shared area of their brains was larger than expected.
The speech remained unchanged, but pediatric surgeon James Goodrich warned that in the future they would have had difficulty learning to walk and developing other motor skills.
Christian, Jadon and Anias’ father, declares that they had definitely made the right choice.
In his opinion, allowing children to have a regular life is the best thing we could ever do.
Our faith will help them overcome any obstacle. Conjoined twins often show persistent dominance over each other.
When it came to the McDonald brothers, Jadon was “strong,” as his body could support the other twin’s survival by working for two.
Although it was a big concern for doctors, the kids can breathe independently, interact with their environment, feeding separately from each other, reacting emotionally to family members, and even playing together.
