Seven months ago, toddlers Erika and Eva Sandoval were fused at the chest and had to navigate the house in a seven-limbed crab walk. Now, finally separated, the girls get around with surprising speed. During the 18-hour surgery, physicians avoided a tangle of blood vessels in the girls' abdomen to separate their lower organs.
