Mother 'incredibly grateful' to renowned children's hospital

Angela Formosa said that she and her taxi driver husband Daniel, 36, were "happy and relieved" to have the girls at home.

She said: "They are really well, they are putting on weight. They are normal bubbly babies who are starting to smile and cry when they want something.

The mother-of-three added that she was "incredibly grateful" to the GOSH staff.

"What they have done for my two girls is amazing. When I was pregnant they were saying that the survival chances were quite low. For them to have been operated on and doing so well - it is amazing."
