Incredibly touching piece, and an astounding display of expertise and skill by the doctors. I found the photo of Rital and Ritaj holding hands while still conjoined particularly moving. Thanks so much for sharing!

This is amazing! Great story with good ending.

This is unbelievable. Yesterday there was a post well ranked here about the "failure of medicine". I think that besides all well known downsides or modern medicine, we have achieved an amazing progress in the last one hundred years.
