Thank you to everyone for all of the love and support in this incredibly difficult time. Jamie had a stroke due to high blood pressure. The bleeding was on the left side of his brain. His prognosis is good, although the recovery will be extensive. He is currently in intensive care but should be moving to a less critical stage very soon. I am hopeful.
Jamie’s brother Jo flew out from the East Coast. Jo is helping in all aspects of this difficult time and an amazing brother to Jamie. Truly.
We also saw Tony Stacchi and Rhode Montijo, who were both in town as the events unfolded.
The doctors have told me it will be a long recovery for him, first in a physical therapy rehabilitation center and then at home with home health care rehabilitation. Recovery will require a lot of work and commitment for us both.
Because many of you have been asking about insurance: Jamie and I are domestic partners in the city of San Francisco, so in October I added Jamie to my health insurance policy. However, I am at the moment unclear about the extent of the coverage and other details regarding our policy. He has no disability coverage that I am aware of.
I am including a close circle of friends here but will most likely add more friends to this website later. For now I ask that you please refrain from posting about this on Facebook. I’ve set up this website as a way to update everyone while maintaining a certain level of privacy.
I also have a lot of facebook friends whom are a part of a larger public artistic network; please do not post anything to my wall. I just don’t want the random involvement from people I don’t know.
Besides it’s a little more cozy in here.
Thank you so much for all the support. Jamie is the most completely amazing, most brilliant, wittiest, and silliest person I have ever known. Every single day I thank the universe, stars, earth, and dumb luck for bringing him to me. I want our paths to continue to be intimately intertwined as long as we both live and feel immense gratitude for the time we have spent together so far. Jamie and I share the most beautiful world together and I want him back in it.
So very much to love to you all,
