Last week, the Bachelor alum and winner of season 1 of Bachelor in paradise revealed 15-year-old girl suffered “severe head trauma and skull fracture” and was in intensive care in a medical coma at Intermountain Healthcare Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“I need everyone to pray right now because we just have to stabilize her,” said Michelle in tears in an Instagram video. “I posted on my story for you to pray guys and once I posted this, its numbers started to drop. Today it’s been a week and if we can’t stabilize her numbers then she’s going to have to put her in a coma that has a lot of other side effects that we don’t want or we’re going to have to have surgery and remove part of his skull. “
“Please pray for her. It’s been a week, it’s been a long time. Last night was really scary but when I posted on my story for you to pray, her numbers started to stabilize, “she continued crying. “I just need you to really pray right now, okay?” Thank you. “
Saturday, Michelle’s ex and Brielle’s father, Ryan Money, took stock of their child’s condition. The reality star republished it.
“I guess it is important to share good and bad,” he wrote on Instagram. “We were really hoping to get Brielle an MRI on Sunday (tomorrow). This MRI is to check the ligaments in his neck and make sure there is no damage. The reason why this is important is that if they are damaged, then his neck must be immobilized. They do this by putting a very large neck brace. “
“Without the MRI, they won’t know if her neck is fine and by default, when she starts waking up, they will have to have her neck in a corset. She probably won’t like the corset, “he added.
He said that after their daughter woke up, the doctors “will end up doing an extended x-ray to see if her ligaments are fine before removing the cervical brace.”
“Since I came here 21 hours ago, her pressure number has been everywhere, which is not good,” he wrote. “They tried to remove it from [the general anesthetic] Propofol but she hates when they do that and her pressure number skyrockets. They don’t want her to contract propofol infusion syndrome (toxicity). They do labs every 2 and 4 hours to test this. If she starts getting it, they’ll just pass it to the Pentabarbital. We simply have not made progress with its low pressure figures and stayed low in the past 48 hours. ”
In his article, Ryan included a photo of the cervical brace, as well as a photo of doctors and nurses talking about Brielle and a picture of nurses pushing her to lie on her side.
“I cannot thank all the thoughts, prayers and actions of those around us enough. We had a group of friends who brought a truck full of food, drink (@monsterenergy) and @chipcookiesco crisps, “he wrote. “I figured they couldn’t eat all of these foods. Well, it’s gone and it’s only 4 hours after they got it. They were so thankful and so when you take care of the people who take care of our daughter, we cannot thank you enough. “
“I love you all and thank you for the prayers! ” he wrote. ‘Rie Brie wants to wake up but his body is not cooperating.’ “
