These Twins Were Born Joined At The Chest. 9 Months Later, They Are Finally Leaving The Hospital... Separated!
April 16, 2014
Owen and Emmett Ezell were joined at the abdomen and chest when born last July. They shared a liver and bowels and suffered from a rare medical condition where their intestines were outside their bodies.
The twins had been hospitalized since their separation last August. They spent the past several months moving from a feeding tube to an IV to their current state, breathing on their own and healing from their surgery.
And today the twins are finally leaving the hospital!
