Good news story: Share your story with us! (en español si es posible;) )
Just wanted to share a lovely story with the forum. In Melbourne yesterday doctors successfully separated con-joined twins (joined at the brain). It took the doctors, working in shifts, 26 hours or so to complete the separation of the girls. Not quite sure how old are they - maybe 24 months old. They're doing well at the moment. I don't quite know how it all came about but I think it was an Australian lady who has taken the last two years to organise the surgery for the girls (they were from an orphanage in Pakistan I think).
Now I know the old terminology is "Siamese twins" - now "con-joined twins" how is that expressed in Spanish?
Todo el mundo da un suspiro de alivio al saber que las dos pequenitas tienen la oportunidad de vivir fisicamente sanas.
I have changed the title a little to make the thread more general and to give the chance to everybody to tell their own good news story
Bueno, mi buena noticia del día ocurrió ayer.
Un alumno nuevo, llevo con él 2 meses, que llevaba suspendiendo inglés desde hace dos años no solo ha aprobado el examen, ¡sino que ha sacado un 6.5!! No es una nota maravillosa, jeje, pero para él sí lo ha sido, se ha sentido como un sabio!
Y yo me he sentido como Santa Rita, jeje, la patrona de los casos imposibles.
Thanks for sharing, Annie...what a great success story!
En español se llaman los siameses o los gemelos unidos.
A surgeon´s job is the one I admire most. They perform miracles on everyday basis all round the world.
4Annie!! Yes that was a remarkable story. You are spot on with the details. I have been following the story on the news as well. I dont know how to say siamese twins or co-joined twins either!! The doctors all involved can not be apreciated enough!! It is unreal!!!!!
