Several people have asked for an update on Laurent. He is doing well. We saw the cardiologist last week. His heart is in rhythm, and so we are grateful for the medications that make it possible. He has a pocket size little gadget that syncs with his phone to take a short EKG periodically when we are concerned about his heart rhythm. (By the way it's quite ironic to think of Laurent -the-singer not being in rhythm.) Again we are amazed at modern technology and the peace of mind it can offer us. The doctor did encourage Laurent to eat healthier, exercise more, and lose some weight. So far he has lost 10 lbs and we have challenged each other in steps competitions. He does not have to return to the cardiologist for 6th months, so hopefully he will continue doing well.
Laurent went back to work within a week and was back to choir that Sunday. He has been shaken up a bit and is determined to be healthier. If you need a walking partner or have some yummy healthy recipes to share, we are on the hunt. Other than that, we are so grateful not to be starting Book 2 in such a declined state. We spoke and sang at a fireside shortly afterward and are grateful that his story turned out much differently this time.
We wish to express an immense thank you to so many of you who shared your faith, prayers, and positive thoughts in our behalf. We know it made a difference. We also are grateful once more for the healing power of music. Laurent's favorite t-shirt says "Music saved my life". Once more this has proven to be true. All day Thursday we played music and Friday he "woke up". Combining prayer and music so far has proven to be a life-changing combination for us and we hope to continue to share our music with others in the future. Thank you once more for your love.
Our sincerest gratitude to all.
Laurent and Kerrie
