Saw Doug at Creighton ER around 14:00. He had a cat scan and everything looked ok. The doc suspected bruised spinal cord. They were going to move him into ICU when a bed opened up. He was in a lot of pain, his arms felt like they were on fire. He was sensitive to them being touched or moved. They gave him steroids and stronger pain meds. They were going to give him an MRI when I was leaving.
Doug said he was riding well when he endo'd going around a corner. He could not move or feel anything immediately afterwards but then he could move his extremities. He has broken his neck before and has plates along the spine. This impact is more painful than the break.
As more info becomes available, I will pass it on. Doug and Mary appreciate our thoughts and prayers for his recovery.
