GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Conjoined twins are heading home for the Holidays after successfully being separated by UF surgeons.
Twin sisters Jesi and Remi came into the world on May, 15th, 2018 as conjoined twins locked at the abdomen. Two months later, University of Florida Health Surgeons separated the babies.

Like all conjoined twins, the girls faced staggering odds. Remi was discharged from the hospital on October, 4th, 2018.
And on Monday, December 3rd, 2018, the moment arrived for Jesi.
The baby girl was discharged after 203 days at UF Health Shands Children's Hospital.

The sisters will be spending their first Christmas together.
