Conjoined twins separated

The Mirabals twins were in surgery for 12 hours with more than a dozen doctors and nurses working to separate them when they finally succeeded.

Connor and Carter were joined from the sternum to the lower abdomen, sharing a liver and a small intestine and bile ducts. Before the operation, their parents and some nurses lined up for good luck kisses.

The doctors say the boys will go on to live normal happy lives despite their dramatic entrance into the world. How many “attached at the hip” jokes do you think they are gonna hear?
