Fuuug. Take care of yourself man. Back issues are the worst. Also, if you went to skyline, get a checkup elsewhere. :/
If you need an MRI done and they send you to premier, the new GE magnet in Hendersonville is a good one. I'd still recommend getting a disc burned(no pun intended) of the scans for your doc to view and any legal stuff. The cats reading those scans are doing it remote a lot now and blaze.thrpugh them. (I work on MRIs local...)
If you need a random act of kindness, reach out. I'm not far. Get well and take your time. Modern medicine can do a lot but it can't grow a new spine. Go slow and lift smart.

Thanks for all the great info! I will definitely get an image disc. They did the MRI in a mobile unit yesterday @ TriStar. Unfortunately, my short term memory has been pretty short circuited from the last week. The accident was caused by a seizure so I'm going to have some work to do.
What the shit! Man, youíll be sore as hell for at least a week or two. Weíll be checking in on you sir.

A little update. Car appears to be totaled. I must have lost consciousness but I did not hit anyone. So, hairline fracture in the spine and I suspect another one in my ankle. I probably won't be able to drive for a while until I get neurologically cleared. Short term memory is way messed up.

But, I did see if I could still read a schematic this morning and that's all good! My expert opinion is I'll be fine after recovery 🙂 I expect I'll get current orders shipped tomorrow. I can at least sit in a chair and I'm already bored.

This is pretty scary looking so I guess I am quite lucky. I landed in a small ravine apparently. Air bags did not deploy and that probably has something to do with my injuries. I feel pretty bad since my daughter is getting her license in a couple weeks and this was going to be her car to drive to school, etc. But, it's just a car. Working brains are more important!

Yikes! Glad you're going to be OK. Damage definitely looks intense.
