We are, in many respects, "as is"; and much of our happiness and contentment comes from making peace with that, as Abby and Brittany so beautifully exemplify.While their sexuality is none of my business, and I apologize to them for using them to make a point, I do think that their biological reality creates a significant teachable or learnable moment for us, as we confront issues of the rights of individuals to our sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity, and equality under the law, including marriage.If patients have recurrent erosions and they are refractory to hypertonic solutions (Muro 128 5% drops and/or ointment) then a keratectomy can be performed.
There are nearly a dozen different types of conjoined twins, but one of the most commonly connected twins — thoracopagus twins — are attached at the upper portion of the torso.
They share a heart, making it nearly impossible to surgically separate them without one or both twins dying.
Conjoined twins are born from the same egg which does not fully separate once it’s fertilized.
During the first few weeks of gestation, the egg develops into an embryo that begins to split into identical twins, but the partially separated egg stops splitting and begins growing into a conjoined fetus.
The promise of learning about the twins’ love/sex lives was what initially motivated me to watch their TLC series. If a partner touches one genital does the other feel it? I stopped watching “Abby & Brittany” after a few episodes when it became clear that anything having to do with sex wasn’t going to be addressed and that the most titillating bits I would see would involve Abby and Brittany riding Segways and eating pizza.
