Michelle Money’s daughter Brielle was in a tragic skateboard accident around 10 days ago. Since the accident, Brielle has been in the hospital in a coma. She’s had surgery. The doctors have tried to get her brain pressure down. There have been ups and downs, but things are starting to look a lot better. At this point, Brielle is stable.
Michelle’s ex-husband and Brielle’s dad, Ryan Money, shared a new update Tuesday evening. Both he and Michelle are working to keep everyone updated via social media. Since the accident, their social media followers have been offering love and support.
In the newest update from Ryan, he talks about where Brielle’s at right now. He said, “Just spoke with the Nurse and Michelle, they said that Brille is already moving and at times trying to open her eyes. I can’t believe it; Brielle is trying to wake up. We have been without our Brie for over a week and so we are overjoyed by this and cannot wait!!!!! They will still have to keep her sedated because she has the Bolt/Sensor, the Drain, and the breathing tube.”
Sadly, Ryan also reveals that Brielle has pneumonia. He says, “She does have a slight bout of pneumonia and her lungs are going to need assistance for a bit.”
But, the dad seems hopeful. He says they’re really excited and they’re happy with where Brielle’s at right now. As for the next steps, Ryan says, “Next steps is to have her respond to orders like, ‘squeeze my fingers,’ ‘Give me a thumbs up’ … to see if she withdraws from pain.”

So Brielle has been on 4 main drips (medications): Propofol, Dilaudid (pain management), Versed (lessen agitation and anxiety), and Vecuronium or Vec is the paralytic. Propofol has been the main medication that they have been giving to deal with the pressure in her brain. When the pressure spikes they usually bolster with the propofol. TODAY they got her off of the propofol, which is HUGE news. Just spoke with the Nurse and Michelle, they said that Brille is already moving and at times trying to open her eyes. I can’t believe it; Brielle is trying to wake up. We have been without our Brie for over a week and so we are overjoyed by this and cannot wait!!!!! They will still have to keep her sedated because she has the Bolt/Sensor, the Drain, and the breathing tube. Next steps is to have her respond to orders like, “squeeze my fingers,” “Give me a thumbs up,” “can you open your eyes,” etc, or to see if she withdraws from pain, like pinching her feet or hands. She does have a slight bout of pneumonia and her lungs are going to need assistance for a bit. We are so happy, though, with this progress and can’t wait to see her open her eyes. We are so excited!!!!
Michelle Money says Brielle is “trying to wake up”
As TV Shows Ace reported, Michelle took to Instagram to share an update on Tuesday evening. In that update, she also mentions that Brielle is being taken off of her medications. She’s “trying to wake up” right now. Michelle knows that it will be a long process. And, it could take a few days as the medication slowly leaves her body.
On her Instagram stories Wednesday morning, Michelle also asked her followers for advice on how to support Brielle as she wakes up. She wants to make the process as easy as possible for her daughter. It’s likely that Michelle is receiving plenty of responses, as she has a lot of social media followers. And, they’re all by her side through this challenging journey.
