SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former PGA Tour Pro and 2003 Masters Champion, Mike Weir, has been helplessly hoping the condition of his girlfriend’s daughter improves. Finally, after weeks of stress and anxiety, Brielle Money is doing better.

After falling on a skateboard and hitting her head, Brielle was placed in a medically induced coma where she suffered a fractured skull and brain trauma.

On Wednesday, April 8 Mike Weir and girlfriend Michelle Money updated his followers on the status of Brielle.

“Brielle is waking up you guys. We have got her off of a lot of the sedatives, she is getting her bolt removed today. She is making movements. I played her favorite song in her ear and she tried to open her eyes, it was so incredible…I am just so relieved!” Michelle Money said.

A day later, on Thursday, Brielle’s father also gave a positive update on his Instagram account.

Update: April 9th 11am SO MUCH PROGRESS!!! I do not say this flippantly, your prayers are being heard and felt. Brielle is doing so well. She is off almost all of her IV medications. She is still on the Dilaudid but they are trying to get her off of that today. They will switch to giving her morphine through a feeding tube. The nurse said that it is a 20 day weaning process on morphine to get her off of the pain, sedation and paralytic medicines. Brielle started moving and will raise her eyebrows when 'yelled' at or pinched. The medical staff is asking her to squeeze their fingers or move her toes and she will do it most of the time. Her left side is definitely more responsive than her right side. She moves her left hand a lot (video) and is getting some expressions in her face. – The sensor is out of her head!!!! So happy about that. TODAY – Brielle is getting an MRI and CT scan around noon. She might not need the CT scan, they are checking with Trauma to see. Here is some other big news, depending upon how early we get this MRI done and how much sedation/paralytic they have to give her to hold still, she could potentially get extubated today (where they take that breathing tube out of her throat). That would be such a big thing for Brielle, I know she hates that breathing tube. So please keep her in your thoughts that her MRI and CT scan will go well and that they will be able to take that breathing tube out. If the MRI comes back good then they will be able to take the neck brace off too!!!!!! LET'S GO!!! Brielle, we are so proud of you! For her to start moving made us all cry…
