Good news for Joni Mitchell and her fans: The legendary singer seems to be moving toward full recovery.
Mitchell’s conservator, Leslie Morris, posted an update on the singer’s condition on her official website following her aneurysm in March.
“Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm,” the statement says. “However, details that have emerged in the past few days are mostly speculative. The truth is that Joni is speaking, and she’s speaking well. She is not walking yet, but she will be in the near future as she is undergoing daily therapies. She is resting comfortably in her own home and she’s getting better each day. A full recovery is expected.”
Morris is likely referring to the comments made by David Crosby, Mitchell’s longtime friend, who sparked worry earlier this week when he spoke about her condition.
“I have not spoken with her,” he told HuffPost Live. “To my knowledge she is not speaking yet. She is home, she is in care, she is recovering. She took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while. And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury.”
The 71-year-old Mitchell was rushed to the hospital on March 31 after collapsing in her Los Angeles home.
