These Triplets Were The Rarest In The World - Look At Them Now

Imagine waking up, going to bed, going to the bathroom and doing everything in the presence of another human being your entire life. Being a conjoined twin is a rare occurrence, but a difficult one none the less.

Many conjoined twins don’t even survive for more than a few hours after birth as the condition presents challenges to the body’s functions. According to Boredom Therapy, Mackenzie and Macy Garrison have beaten the odds and are now thriving after their separation surgery.

The girls are only the second known case of conjoined twins in the world who are a part of a set of triplets. Their sister was born five minutes after they were.

Though their surgery would be difficult and potentially dangerous, their surgeon said performing this type of surgery for him was a dream come true. Photos show the girls happy just five days after their operation.

Now the girls are grown up and able to walk on their own thanks to crutches, prosthetic limbs and the help of physical therapists who taught them how to walk. These two even have their own horses!
