Oh, Lucky Me! Foot Surgery… and [sigh], non weight bearing recovery.

Orthopedic Surgery on My Foot Oct. 23rd. That dang navicular bone in my foot just wouldn’t fix it’s self this summer!

I wanted to let you know about having to lay out for a few months. If you look close at the picture above you’ll see my foot in a boot. Six months ago I broke the navicular bone in my right foot [pictured below]. I’ve not been in pain since the intial break, but this is tricky bone to heal.

I’ve been through everything over the course of this summer to repair it but to no avail. Time has come to have surgery. I will have screws put in to stich the bone back together. I’m required to stay completely off my foot for 3 entire months! No driving! Imparticular, recovery will include taking time off from performances for three months! Suck! But after the intial non weight bearing period is over, I will start rehab and then back to work ASAP!

For those first 3 months off my foot recovering, I’ll be staying engaged via online visiting with friends, Facebook, and writing and developing a singing workshop. I hope to God, Todd doesn’t tire of taking me for drives. …and that my Skype account works great. Would love to hear from you during this time. Stay in touch on FB, twitter and the like. Say a little prayer for me please for a fast and full recovery.

All my best,


Duo with guest Kevin Sutton at the Jazz At The Library Series


Sunday, October 14th @ 2pm – Mia will be performing as a duo with guest Kevin Sutton at the Jazz At The Library series in Anacortes, Washington. Check Mia’s calendar for more details…

I have been enjoying sitting down with Kevin and playing my guitar with him. He is such an easy going guy and so talented. We are experimenting and playing together in this setting at the Library to give us an opportunity to try out a burgeoning sound between the two of us. Take care, Mia
