Mike’s Story

Site created on June 20, 2019

Welcome to Mike Billstein's CaringBridge site. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. 

On Wednesday, June 19, Mike experienced a terrible fall. He'd been finishing up repairing a window on the third story of his and Julie's house in Lake Elmo. He hadn't been feeling 100 percent that day, but the hard worker that he is, he was determined to finish his project. We aren't sure what caused Mike to lose his footing and fall, but we suspect he might have experienced a heart attack. He fell three stories to the patio below. His wife Julie was at home when it happened and immediately alerted the neighborhood. The next door neighbors were at his side within seconds, and 15 minutes later an ambulance was at the house with two doctors who ensured that Mike made it to Regions Hospital, where he has been receiving emergency treatment for his critical condition. 

We need all the love, support, positive energy, and prayers we can get right now for Mike. He's deeply loved by so many, especially his family.  Thank you for your kind words and support at this time.
