SANTIAGO, CHILE (AP) - Doctors in Chile are optimistic about the survival of a 10-month-old girl who was separated from a conjoined twin who died following the surgery.

Little Maria Paz awoke for the first time since the operation nearly a week ago, and Dr. Carlos Acuna calls that “an excellent sign.” He says she’s been successfully switched to a common respirator and her condition is favorable.

Monday’s good news comes only hours after her twin Maria Jose died from general organ failure following last week’s marathon surgery.
