“I got some really good news, all things considered. The C1 and C6 are indeed fractured, non-displacement though which is a very good thing and I don’t have any damage to my spinal cord, no ligament damage, and no surgery which I’m very thankful for. And a pro tip, if you’re gonna break your neck, do it in Birmingham. They’ve been great, everyone at UAB has been great. For real, it has meant a ton to me that so many of you have been so kind and reached out and stopped in to see me and texted me. I feel like I sound like a broken record but I am very grateful and I’m gonna be alright. It’s a blessing.”
