Joni Mitchell is “making good progress”, according to July Collins.

Rolling Stone reports that Collins posted the update on her Facebook page:

“I have just heard from a close mutual friend that Joni is walking, talking, painting some, doing much rehab every day, and making good progress–I have another friend who went through something similar-it does take a long time, three years for my friend, who has realy totaly recovered professionally and personally. I will try my best to see our songbird when I am in LA in the coming weeks.”


Previously, People magazine claimed 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 last 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.”
