Sarathy was born in a government hospital and diagnosed with heart problem soon after birth.
The parents took him to a local private doctor and the baby was put under medication. Doctors said he was a small baby and needs to put on weight and grow a little older for surgery. When he did not show any improvement, the parents took him to the district Hospital at Thiruvallur. From the hospital at Thiruvallur they were referred to MIOT Hospitals.
Here the doctors have decided that surgery is a must and should be undertaken at the earliest without delays.
Karthik, father of Sarathy, came up the hard way and was always wanting to get educated. But due to their financial conditions he had to join his father to do agriculture to aid him.
He however broke away and did his BA after marriage. Just now enrolled in a private company and has not completed his probation period.
Diagnosis DTGA/IVS/Regressed LV, Dilated RV with Mild TR.

Nagalakshmi is a home maker and is too distraught about her son’s health.
They also have an elder daughter who is three years old.
