Kaven Gainey was born 1 pound 6 ounces, eager to come into the world.  Born four months early, he was given a five percent chance of survival.  At only 23 weeks, his parents were warned to prepare for the worst.

He is now two-and-a-half and developing well.

His mother comments:

“He was like a tiny kitten,” she said.

“The nurses told myself and Kaven’s dad [Lawrence Gainey] to think of Kaven’s incubator as a see-through womb.

“It was amazing to see him developing before our eyes.

“When I was first able to hold him I only had to use one hand but just to hold him at that stage was amazing.”

Kaven has a mild form of cerebral palsy and as a result of medical difficulties, his left hand side is not as strong as his right.

“Basically now he is just a very active, very funny little boy,” she said.

“His weakness on his left hand side doesn’t really stop him from doing anything because he compensates with his right side where he is strong.

“My dad used to say Kav was the bionic man because he had so much done to him.

“He has a lot of scars but I am going to teach him to be proud of them.”

Kaven’s story will feature in Hospital Check Up on BBC One Wales on Monday at 2235 GMT.
