Dr. Irwin Weiss, pediatric intensive care specialist, provided an update for media following the surgery. The second twin, Maria Teresa, was removed from a breathing ventilator on Aug. 27. News of Maria Teresa's recovery after her third surgery received coverage during the week, with quotes from Dr. Andy Madikians, pediatric intensive care specialist.
