May 7, 2007: Identical twins not identical



the Daily Mail has the full story of these guys, identical twins born at the same time. It turns out to be a case of twin to twin transfusion, where one twin sends blood to the other through a common placenta.

In this case the problem was detected at 15 weeks, so early that the second very-medical link doesn't even put it in the category of 'severe'. It's a complication that endangers both twins; the donor twin is usually anemic, and the recipient has excess red blood cells and jaundice. But the story says both have shown a will to live, even at their tiny age and size.

The smaller one looks totally conscious and downright smart.

He's looking at the big guy and thinking...

I can only hope the parents name them Julius & Vincent or (Arnold & Danny).



gtown  Monday May 7 02:00 PM

Ok, ok, I read the article, the parents blew it. Shame!



Pie  Monday May 7 03:02 PM

I read the first article -- did I miss something? What did they screw up?



gtown  Monday May 7 03:07 PM

They named the kids Byron and Lincoln...they screwed up, IMHO

Welcome to the Cellar, A Blind Man.
It won't seem so perverted next time. It will be, it just won't seem so.

This is a toughie. Very few of the "donor twin" make it. They can diagnose this problem in utero and then the parents have the agonizing decision of which twin should be saved--many times if they try to save one, they both die. Is very sad. I hope that little guy makes it.


as an aside--i cannot imagine having to decide between two offspring OR endure that both may die. This is human sadness at it's apex.

I thought he was thinking, "Wow, look at those teeth! Now he's licking his fingers. Must... remove.. headgear and... escape."
