"My mind immediately went to Abby. My heart ached and all I wanted to do was be able to hold their hands and tell them that they could do it. That they would make it through the surgery. That they were so big, and strong, and brave, and that they could do anything," she recalled.

"But I couldn't. All I could do was sit, and pray, and wait. And so that is what we did."

Despite Abby losing a lot of blood, both girls survived the surgery.

Heather described what it was like to see her daughters finally separated and have the full gravity of the situation hit.

"They were on their own. They were fighting on their own. They each looked almost lonely in their beds without the other. It almost felt wrong in a way that they couldn't be with each other."

"I realised that I was now going to have to split myself between two children. Before I could stand in one spot and read them both a story. I could change Erin's diaper while chatting with Abby. I realised I couldn't do that anymore. I couldn't kiss them at the same time, and it blew my mind."
