Conjoined Twins Set For Surgery

- (KPRC) A pair of conjoined twins born earlier this year at Houston's Texas Children's Pavilion for Women will soon be separated.

The identical conjoined twin girls were born at the hospital on April 11. The girls, estimated to weigh 3 pounds, 7 ounces each, were born via Caesarean-section at 31 weeks gestation.

Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith share a liver, diaphragm, pericardial sac (the lining of the heart) and intestines. 

Now estimated to weigh 10 pounds, 4 ounces each, the girls are being cared for by a team of specialists in the level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Texas Children's Hospital.
