Nutsville City Limits.

Well Mike has reached the limits of Velcade, 8 cycles down, no more to go. Even if he wanted more, he's not allowed. Tomorrow it's off to the QE for those final arrangements.

Now as you all know already Mike isn't backward in coming forward and so when he was asked during his fruit phase, what he'd be doing when it was all over (the chemo that is, not when he dies, silly people!), he promised the nurses something special. Today he fulfilled that promise. Most patients buy a nice card and a box of chocolates, or maybe a nice bunch of flowers, not Mike. There is no easy way to say this so I'll just have to show you all.

Yep he dressed up as Tina Turner and sang his own version of "The Best" to Liz and Donna, oh and various other members of staff and patients. (Video to follow when edited. )

  1. Just hysterical! Did you get a shot for the MM calendar? Would this make him MISS January then?

  3. Don't know which would be funnier - Mike singing or sitting 'quietly' with the other patients getting his treatment! I can just picture some old dear wandering in - 'No I need chemo not a sex change!'

  6. I have a friend of mine who...um...wants me to ask you this question. Ya see this friend of mine...let's just call her, hmmm... Diane, yeah that's good. See, she was hoping to be able to
    participate in this MM calendar fundraiser thingy and the thing is this, my..uh...friend just saw this photo of your Mike channeling Tina Turner and she realized...um....how can I put this? that she is running pretty much "neck and neck" with Mike in the....uh...shall we say cleavage department. Does that take my...uh...friend out of the running for a calendar appearance? See, she was thinking we need somebody to represent the sm-oobs of the world.
