Michelle shared an update on her daughter’s condition via Instagram.

“Love this kid so much❤️ My heart is so full. Another good day in the books. It has officially been 72 hours. (Longest hours of my life) Hopefully we have hit the peak in her swelling and can start working her off some of these meds tomorrow evening to see if she can manage the pressure on her own,” she wrote. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the AMAZING nurses and doctors and technicians and therapists and staff and volunteers and ALL OF YOU!! THANK YOU FOREVER!!! @primarychildrens 🙏🏼.”

ORIGINAL STORY: 4/1/2020 –

Bachelor alum Michelle Money is asking for prayers for her daughter Brielle.

Earlier this week, Brielle was in a skateboarding accident that led to a serious brain injury. The TV personality, who appeared on season 11 of The Bachelor, is taking to social media to thank fans for their support as well as share an update on Brie

“I’m not sure where to even begin. The outpouring of love and support for my beautiful Brielle is overwhelming. Our family has been in a constant state of gratitude and humility for the messages and flowers and food and words of hope from people we know and people we have never met. Thank you is not enough. I am forever grateful for all of you!,” she wrote in the post.

In a previous post, Michelle revealed that the surgery went well. “Surgery went great. Her numbers are in a really good place. Two more days to let the brain swell up and monitor until taking her off of sedation to see what we find. Thank you again for the prayers. You will never know. ❤️”

According to Michelle’s boyfriend Mike Weir, neighbors were the ones who found Brie immediately after the accident while they were out walking . She is currently in ICU at Primary Children’s Hospital.

Michelle also shared the horrific news on Instagram saying, “Brielle was in terrible skateboarding accident and is in the ICU on life support. She suffered a serious brain trauma and a fractured skull. She is in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure in her brain. She is in amazing hands up at Primary Children’s Hospital. Please- I am asking for prayers. I believe in the power of communication with whatever God you believe in. The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real.”

Brielle was in terrible skateboarding accident and is in the ICU on life support. She suffered a serious brain trauma and a fractured skull. She is in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure in her brain. She is in amazing hands up at Primary Children’s Hospital. Please- I am asking for prayers. I believe in the power of communication with whatever God you believe in. The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real. In whatever form you commune with your Higher Power, please as a desperate mother, I am begging you to do so. She needs support and healing right now. And if you could send one up for me as well, I would appreciate it. This is the worst experience of my life. ALWAYS MAKE THEM WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK. Thank you to the neighbors who happened to be on a walk and found her and called 911. You will never understand. I would not have found her in time. My heart is forever grateful. Thank you to all of you who have sent prayers and messages and love. Brielle has been through so much already this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will pull through. #PrayForBrie

In a matter of days, Brielle has made a turn for the better, but is still in serious condition. Due to the coronavirus restrictions in the hospital only one parent at a time can stay by her side. That process has been hard on Michelle and Brie’s dad, Ryan Money.

“It has been a pretty good day. Brielle is right on track with what the doctors expected. I made it back to the hospital this evening after getting some much needed sleep and regrouping at home,” Michelle wrote. “After the latest updates on the coronavirus, Ryan and I have decided that we need to err on the side of caution. Every time we leave the hospital we run the risk of becoming infected and bringing it into the PICU. The worst thing that could happen is for us to start feeling sick and not be able to be here when Brielle wakes up. Not worth risking. So I am going to stay at the hospital until she does. Most likely on Saturday or Sunday. Send prayers to Ryan because I know this is going to be so difficult to not see her, but it’s the right move. As I sit here next to Brielle tonight I am filled with hope and love and support. I know all of your prayers have made the difference. Thank you so much. Every. Single. One of you.”

Our hearts go out to Michelle and Ryan at this difficult time. We’re wishing Brielle a full recovery.
