One Formerly Conjoined Twin Goes Home As Sister Battles In Texas Hospital

Anna and Hope were born via C-section in December 2016 but had to remain at the hospital for 13 months while doctors formulated a plan. That plan was carried out early last year when a team of 75 surgeons, anesthesiologists, cardiologists, nurses, and medical assistants safely separated Anna and Hope.

“We’ve thought about and prayed for this day for almost two years,” Jill said. “It’s an indescribable feeling to look at our girls in two separate beds.”

The surgery lasted seven hours and afterward both girls were progressing nicely. However, after time, one progressed a little quicker than her sister and has been able to finally go home to start her life outside of the hospital.


After being cared for by a team of specialists in the level IV and level II neonatal intensive care units, Anna was discharged from the hospital following 428 days in their care on March 2nd.

This is certainly welcomed news for Jill and Michael, and Anna’s two older brothers, but it will be even more special when Hope gets to go home as well. Doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital do not have a solid date when Hope will be discharged, but they are confident it will be soon.
