Holidailies Day 1

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Of course, I have to do the traditional introduction post for Holidailies or else things would just be off kilter.

Quick and dirty since it is so late and I have been sick all week.

I’m Suzy, 36, married to Tony since forever (or 1998, whichever comes first.) We live in rural Virginia, in a beach town. We have no kids of our own, but have a gaggle of nieces and nephews whom we adore.

Freelance writing is what I do, mainly about body art and modification, but I have recently started writing for a local weekly newspaper, mainly covering government meeting. My most recent assignment is a feature story, that I am very excited to write.

In 2008 I was diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma and had my right kidney removed. I had the diagnosis of “No Evidence of Disease” until August of this year and now I am in the watchful waiting stage. Basically, I have pulmonary nodules and we are waiting to see if they grown on my next scan.

Prior to the cancer, I had some physical disabilities due to various issues, after the cancer I suffer from severe lymphedema in my right leg which makes the mobility I had even more reduced. Regardless of that, I am still trying to live the best life I can, as long as I can.

MutteringFooldotCom is 11 years old this year, it started in March of 2000. I am not a Mommy blogger, nor do I like that term for women who are Moms and bloggers. That’s a story for another day, though.

So, again, quick dirty, this is who I am in a nutshell, more tomorrow and welcome to MutteringFooldotCom for Holidailies 2011.
