American conjoined twins, successfully separated on June 19, 2004. They were born joined from mid-chest to naval, sharing a pericardium (sac around the heart), diaphragm and liver. Erin's heart was 60% in Jade's chest. After their separation they returned home on Friday, July 2, 2004, just 13 days after surgery. Erin had suffered a stroke to her spinal cord that left her paralyzed from mid-chest down.
Sy Scholfield quotes their mother on their official online biography : "I was admitted to the hospital immediately and stayed there until the babies were delivered by C-section on February 26, 2004. . . Erin and Jade were born just one minute later at 10:31 a.m."
