The California hospital where conjoined twins were separated last week released video on Wednesday of the two-year-old girls meeting for the first time since their 17-hour surgery.

“It was such a thrill for us to see the girls next to one another again,” Aida Sandoval, the mother of Eva and Erika, told The Associated Press.

The pair have been recovering in the same room in the intensive care unit at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford in Palo Alto, but in different beds.

The hospital’s Dr. Meghna Patel said the twins are progressing well. “They have had no significant complications,” she told The Associate Press. The twins are conscious and breathing without ventilators. They are expected to remain in the ICU before moving to an acute care unit.
