After a chest xray, exam and nice long chat with the good doctor, we have settled on taking another, closer look in a month. This sleeping more thing has only been going on for 1.5 weeks, so we want to wait a month and see if this is a sustained issue, or could possibly some random virus or have another cause besides the heart. This is probably the beginning of him becoming symptomatic due to the stenosis in the conduit. If he's still sleepier this time next month, Dr. Bromberg will do an echo and likely send him for a cath here in St. Louis and then send the info to Dr. Bove in Michigan for his opinion on timing of surgery to replace the conduit. He said things could go quickly so that hopefully he'd be fully recovered and able to start kindergarten with no restrictions.
