Separated Twins Breathing on Their Own

Formerly conjoined twins Kendra and Maliyah Herrin are breathing on their own after undergoing 26 hours of surgery only a few days ago. They still have a lot of recovering to do, but it looks promising for them so far.

Kendra and Maliyah Herrin, 4, were removed from ventilators about 3:45 p.m., said Primary Children's Medical Center spokeswoman Laura Winder, who called it "wonderful progress ... It's a little sooner than perhaps we expected, but (doctors) said all along we would listen to how they were responding and follow their lead."
