There have been many postings on this website about small VSDs.  You should look through some of these.  A mid-muscular VSD with a pressure gradient of 60 mmHg between the left and right ventricles is, indeed, a small defect that has a very good chance of closing spontaneously over time. This ranges from months to years.  This would not be considered a danger to the child and there would be no restrictions.
