The Dells from Gay, Ga. were overjoyed when they found out they were expecting twin daughters around Thanksgiving. However, their excitement turned into shock when the twins were conjoined at the chest and abdomen. Doctors have said that it is impossible to separate them.
The couple received devastating news that Amelia and Elhora have a complete fusion of the atrium and ventricles of their hearts, causing them to beat as one heart. Due to this, doctors are unsure if the twins will survive after delivery.
Despite the heart-wrenching news, the Dells are holding onto hope and preparing to welcome their daughters in March at Northside Hospital. However, Elhora is missing essential pulmonary arteries that carry blood back to the lungs, meaning she will not be able to breathe on her own after birth.
The couple is taking comfort in their faith and focusing on the positive memories they will carry with them. They are also grateful for the support of their family and friends and have set up a GoFundMe campaign to help with medical costs.
