Michelle Money posted a rare video with her daughter that was taken just two hours before the teen’s serious skateboarding accident that landed her in the ICU in a Utah hospital. The Bachelor alum posted a clip to Instagram that showed her having fun with her 15-year-old on Sunday afternoon before the day took a tragic turn.
In the video, Michelle and Brielle are sitting in a car as they move to the song “Goodie Bag” by Still Woozy. The mom-daughter duo is seen laughing together as they ham it up while jamming to the 2018 song by the electronic/acoustic fusion artist.
In the caption to the post, Michelle wrote that two hours before her daughter’s accident, they decided to get glammed up with makeup and take a drive to a nearby gas station to get something to drink. Michelle revealed that she also let her teen daughter practice parking in the lot of the gas station because she will soon be getting her driver’s permit. The Bachelor in Paradise alum joked that while Brielle thought she was awesome at parking, that wasn’t the case. Michelle also wrote that she and her daughter have so much fun together and that Brielle is her “favorite human” and she can’t wait to hear her laugh again.
Michelle gave a brief update on Brielle’s condition following surgery. The reality star said her daughter’s surgery went well and that her “numbers” are in a good place. The Bachelor Nation veteran added that her daughter will be kept under sedation for a few more days to let her brain swell up, and then doctors will be able to determine where things stand regarding her recovery. Michelle also thanked her friends and followers for all of their prayers.

This was two hours before the accident. We decided to put makeup on and go to the gas station and grab a drink. I told her I would let her drive my car in the parking lot as she is working on driving soon. She told me she was awesome at parking! ????Lol! (She lied) We have so much fun together! She is my favorite human! I can’t wait to hear her laugh again! 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. ❤️#prayforbrie

“Still praying,” wrote Michelle’s Bachelor Pad partner, Graham Bunn.
“Won’t stop praying!” said franchise fan favorite Tenley Molzahn.
“So happy to hear surgery went well. Praying for you all,” added former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas Stagliano.

Michelle previously asked fans for prayers after revealing that her daughter sustained a severe brain injury and a fractured skull after suffering an accident while skateboarding without a helmet. The teenager was found by some neighbors just after the accident and was rushed to Intermountain Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
