Ottawa. Siamese sisters Krista and Tatiana Hogan are a healing miracle. The sisters were born on October 25, 2006 in Vancouver, Canada, and had only a 20% chance of their child being born.
His case is one in 2.5 lakh, so his doctors did not give him a chance to live for more than 24 hours. Currently, Felicia Sims’ daughters are 16 years old and remain an enigma to doctors around the world; Not only because of the impossibility of her life expectancy but because the two share her views.
There is no scientific explanation as to why this happens. Their mother first discovered this connection when they were children. It was an accident, as he was tickling when he saw his sister laughing.
Since then neurosurgeons have studied the case. Krista and Tatiana assure that they feel and think the same way. There is even talk that they have a shared consciousness.
Middle CBC Made a documentary to honor the first ten years of Siamese twins, where they included the opinions of experts, their parents, and even themselves.
The minor’s mother was just 21 years old at the time of delivery. The birth was assisted by 16 doctors. Currently, among other health problems, the sisters suffer from epilepsy, diabetes and are allergic to gluten.
Although their mother didn’t find out what was happening in their daughters’ shared brain until years later, the doctors who treated her at birth already understood something was amiss. According to the testimony of earlier doctors, when one of the girls cried, it was enough to put a lollipop in the mouth of the other to pacify her.
After years of study, a neurosurgeon found something unexpected in an MRI: The girls have a bridge that connects the thalamus of the two. This means they share a part of the brain region that is responsible for all sensory perceptions.
Although this theory has not been confirmed, it is the one that matters the most to the team of doctors probing the case. Even Siamese people say that sometimes they are not sure what the views of one are in contrast to the other.
According to her mother, although they share feelings, the two have very different personalities. Tatiana is the leader and Krista proved to be more reserved and quieter than her sister.
Although they have less cognitive development than other children their age, minors do their best to lead normal lives. He lives with two elder brothers, a younger brother and his parents.
The Hogan twins attend school and enjoy youthful hobbies such as watching television, reading, or camping. They will have to undergo frequent blood tests, exams and MRIs to check their health status. Although each has its own organs, its vascular system is shared. According to her mother, sometimes they fight because they cannot agree on what decision to make.
The sisters also attended swimming lessons and have already entered high school. Although their level of development is low, they are learning to write, read and perform basic math operations.
