Baby was inserted shunt for VSD, 2d echo showed healing, weight gain. Suggestions?

Hello Dr Santosh, My Kid was detected for a small VSD L - R shunt of 41mmHg 6 weeks back. Today we did a 2d echo and doctor said its healing , however the L- R shunt is 64 mmHg. I am just curious to know if he is doing normal. He had a weight gain as well. My kid is a one and a half months old. Would appreciate your help.
