Joy Break: First Birthday Apart
Our TVs and smart phones bombard us with news that brings us down. Especially after what happened Saturday in Charlottesville. Where has all the good news gone? Those stories are still there. Here is a story that we hope will brighten your day.
Twins Eva and Erika Sandoval just celebrated their first birthday apart. We don’t mean they were partying in separate places. Eva and Erika were born conjoined. Fused together at the chest.
However, when they were two, doctors undertook a dangerous 17-hour surgery to separate them. The girls just recently celebrated their third birthday, along with a slew of family, friends and nurses who took care of the girls following the surgery.
The girls’ at-home nurse told CBS13 that, “To know that they were going to have separate individual lives, it was such an amazing prayer that was answered.”
