Report claims she is now at home
Joni Mitchell is now at home and “has made remarkable progress”, according to a report.
People magazine claim to have obtained court papers filed in Los Angles on July 2 which reveal that Mitchell “is expected to make a full recovery” after suffering a brain aneurysm in late March.
In the documents, Mitchell’s lawyer Rebecca J. Thyne wrote that she had visited Mitchell at her home in California on June 26.
“When I arrived she was seated at her kitchen table feeding herself lunch,” Thyne wrote.
“She also told me that she receives excellent care from caregivers round-the-clock,” Thyne continued. “It was clear that she was happy to be home and that she has made remarkable progress. She has physical therapy each day and is expected to make a full recovery.”
The most recent official statement regards Mitchell’s health came on June 28, 2015 through the artist’s official website: “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.”
In an interview with The Huffington Post published a few days earlier [June 26, 2015], David Crosby had voiced concerns about Mitchell’s health, revealing that Mitchell “is home, she is in care, she is in recovery. How that’s going to go, we don’t know yet. 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.”
Mitchell, 71, was found unconscious in her Los Angeles home on March 31. She was admitted to an area hospital after which conflicting reports emerged concerning her responsiveness.
