Dear Sonambehl,

You didn't actually ask a question.  I am not able to ***** your nephew directly, so I cannot say what needs to be done for him specifically.  Your pediatric cardiologist should be able to help advise you, unless you have a question that is not being answered by this cardiologist.  If this is the case, then I would recommend that you request a second opinion.
