A set of conjoined twins, who were born in January at the Johnson City Medical Center, could be returning home soon.


WCYB-TV reports Keylee Ann and Zoey Marie Ford shared a liver and part of a diaphragm.  The two were separated at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, earlier this month.


It reportedly took a team of 30 physicians to separate the twins, but they could return home to Erwin, Tennessee by the summer.


This isn’t the only tie conjoined twins have to the region.  Chang and Eng Bunker, the original “Siamese Twins” from Siam (now Thailand) settled in Wilkesboro in 1839 after touring the world as a curiosity display.
