Two formerly conjoined toddlers from the Dominican Republic have left a Richmond hospital after recovering from separation surgery, and doctors predict they’ll be ready to go home by Christmas.
Maria and Teresa Tapia left Children’s Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University on Friday. At a news conference before their departure, the girls clapped and waved and one kissed the lead doctor on their surgical team, Dr. David Lanning.
“I thank God and everyone who made this possible,” the girls’ mother, Lisandra Sanatis, said through a translator.
