Boone’s Story

On Friday, November 8th Boone was injured in a football game against Bishop Kelly, resulting in a broken neck. He had surgery that night where the doctors took out the bursted bone and implanted a titanium plate into the other fractured bone. We want everyone to know that he is in good spirits and appreciates all the prayers, love, and support from you all. We will update as time progresses.


Just a reminder that any donation made on this page (in the purple box, that says Honor Boone) WILL NOT benefit or go to the Bartlome's.  That donation goes to the CaringBridge site, which helps keep the site  running.

Donations FOR The Boone Bartlome Family can be sent to:

Thank You!

More of Boone's Journey

Boone continues to strengthen the functions he has. Still praying, still waiting, hoping for some movement in his right hand. He can now hold a water bottle up to his mouth with his left hand. He is gaining balance while sitting on the edge of the bed with no assistance. Having no tricep muscles inhibits him from being able to upright himself in bed and to maneuver his wheelchair by himself. This is an extremely frustrating fact for him. For the most part Boone is keeping a good attitude. Of course there are times when it all seems impossible, but he finds the strength to keep going. Pain is still causing grief, another urology appointment next week to try to get a handle on that. He has been able to propel his legs forward in the pool. He is able to lift and direct his left leg better and better while the right leg is still coming along. The medications he is on makes him extremely tired as well as the full days of therapy. Thank goodness for the weekends full if rest and recovery!!!
