Separated twins both doing well

A Bangladeshi toddler separated from her conjoined twin sister was talking and behaving normally after being woken yesterday from a medically induced coma, the head of the surgery team said.

Trishna is already doing well enough that she could leave intensive care, said Wirginia Maixner, director of neurosurgery at Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

“She looks brilliant, she is talking, she is being Trishna, she is behaving the way she always has,” Ms Maixner told reporters. “

Her sister, Krishna, was due to be slowly brought out of the coma last night, Ms Maixner said. The twins, who turn three next month, had been joined at the top of their heads.
