The twin sisters were born conjoined at the lower chest in the Himalayan nation of Bhutan, yet they found hope in leading a normal life apart from one another thanks to a donor.
To complicate matters further, they also shared a liver, and doctors would need to see more closely just what was shared and what was separate.
After surviving a six-hour operation involving 25 clinicians, they were not only in good health, but also in good spirits.
When hospital staff tried putting them in separate beds, they became cranky.
"We try to have them a little bit apart, but they manage to shuffle back together and have their legs intertwined, always," nursing coordinator Kellie Smith said.
They love nothing more than snuggling up with one another.
