Two of a kind

Posted: Updated:

Six-month-old Virginia conjoined twins are reportedly in stable condition following a 14-hour operation to separate them.

The surgery took place Monday at the Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University. A'zhari and A'zhiah Jones were joined at the chest and abdomen and shared a liver and part of their heart.

Doctors say the medical team is "very optimistic" the twins will have a full and complete recovery.

The girls are currently in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit which is where they have been since they were born.
