On February 26, 2002, twins Kendra and Maliyah Herrin were born sharing a large intestine, bladder, liver and a single kidney. When they were 4 years old, their parents made the difficult decision to separate the twins—never before had doctors performed surgery on conjoined twins sharing the same kidney. Five months later, in 2005, these healthy girls traveled to Chicago to meet Oprah. Today, the twins are 11 years old. Watch to find out how they're doing and why they're no longer the only twins in their family.

Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/isaiahs_journey2015/ Isaiah had gotten off the city bus and was crossing the road when he got hit by a truck. He was airlifted to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center. As soon as he got there he had his spleen removed. He spent the next 3 weeks in a coma. He had many injuries that include Shattered cheekbone, fractured orbital bone, shattered gums, broken jaws, fractured ribs, punctured lung, broken arm and a severe TBI. The excellent team at Sunnybrook saved his life. He spent the next 2 months recovering. Doctors did not give Isaiah very good odds. He was not moving his left side, talkin or even really communicating. He would give the thumbs up and thumbs down but it was not consistent. All he could really do was lay in bed. He was sent to Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Center November 26th 2015 where I believe his true recovery started. The first day there he rolled over for the first time and by the end of that week he gave us his first smile. I could not praise the staff enough for how amazing they all were. After Christmas it was like a spark happened with Isaiah. He said his first word December 28th and a week later he was speaking full sentences. He started moving his left side New Years Eve and a week later he was moving his own foot to take a step. He was a totally different kid. He is a very strong and determined guy. He worked so hard and pushed through even on the painful days. My son is pretty incredible.
