The conditions of conjoined twins whom doctors separated last summer have steadily improved and they should be released this week from a Dallas hospital, officials said.
Owen and Emmett Ezell should be discharged Wednesday from Medical City Children’s Hospital.
They were born in July 2013, joined at the chest.
While the nurses painted the boys nails to be able to tell them apart, their mother Jenni Ezell has already noticed differences in their personalities.
“Owen opens his eyes a little bit wider and is a little more excitable,” she told ABC News. “Emmitt is more relaxed. His eyes are usually softer and more closed.”
The two brothers will finally be able to spend time with their 2-year-old sister Liam and 7-year-old brother Ethan. As their parents, get ready to learn to clean their tracheal tubes, manage a home ventilator and help them with rehab exercises.
