The parents carried the weighty burden of dread and concern regarding the operation. According to the Star Tribune, sixty percent of such procedures resulted in fatalities at the time of the siblings’ separation.
On May 12, 2006, a team of 17 surgeons performed a delicate operation that lasted 12 hours and was fraught with anxiety, especially when it came time to separate their shared liver.
The girls had to spend the first six months of their lives in hospital rooms, but fortunately everything went according to plan and they both survived.

Although both are extremely independent, they occasionally hold hands while strolling together.
