Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Well Wednesday 1/5/22 late evening in Franklin Cty VA, Joe was in a “freak” car accident when snow/ice from the vehicle in front of him flew off and into his front windshield hitting him in the face/ head causing him to loose control of his car sending him down an embankment and headlong into a tree…

He was taken to C-Franklin Cty Hosp but then flown to trauma hospital C-Roanoke Mem. Hosp. & that’s where he remains in ICU-976, where he’s getting excellent care… he’s had major injuries and according to his Drs and Nurses he’s blessed to still be with us… ✝️🙏🙏🙏💖🕊

His injuries consist of…. concussion, frontal facial bone damage, both sides jaw broken, both collar bones broken, all of his ribs broken, both sides pelvis/ hips broken, right shoulder dislocation (and back in place), right hand/ wrist broken and set, right knee broken, right foot heel open compound and has surgery on these last 2 so foot / ankle in a “cage” with screws holding foot / heel together, Orthopedic Surgeon says he has a chance it will heal, left arm- hand- leg- foot lots of bruising but nothing broken… 🙀🥰 thankfully… ✝️🙏🙏🙏

So he’s on a respirator/ ventilator and mild sedation until they can take the breathing tubes and feeding tube out and he’s trying to pull all those awful tubes out (who wouldn’t). Hence sedation… ☹️👌

Soooo I’ve been asking for PRAYERS. PRAYERS, PRAYERS to lift him up into our good Lords hands and they are working PRAISE THE LORD ✝️🙏💖

His miracles are that he has had NO major brain bleeding/ swelling, and NONE of his vital organs were damaged… WHEW… I believe God has a wonderful plan fir my baby brother Joseph Curtis Bartholomew… ✝️👏👏👏💖

Please continue all the wonderful prayers for his recovery…. and there is a “go fund me” page on my Facebook page to help with medical and living expenses…
