A Great Ormond Street Hospital spokesperson said:
“The two boys remain in intensive care. They are stable and making progress daily. The surgical team had always anticipated a substantial period of recovery from this major surgery. They are broadly where the medical team expected them to be at this point.”
Angie Benhaffaf, mother of Hassan and Hussein said:
“The past two weeks have been extremely tough for our ‘little fighters’ and for me, Az and the girls. Even though the sun has shone since their separation, we’ve also had dark clouds that hovered over their little cots in intensive care and brought difficult days for them both. Both Hassan and Hussein have been through so much. We know there is still a long journey ahead. As parents we sometimes feel helpless and we watch anxiously what our precious twins are going through everyday.
“The one thing that is helping us to get through each new day is the support we are still getting from the public, and the bundles of post that come twice a day for the boys at GOSH. Thanks to each of you who continue to keep the boys in your thoughts and prayers. Also, a big thank you to the media for once again allowing us to have this precious time with our ‘little fighters!’”
