There have been a couple of updates regards Joni Mitchell‘s health over the weekend.

In an interview with The Huffington Post published on Friday [June 26, 2015], David Crosby revealed 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.”

Yesterday [June 28, 2015], Leslie Morris, Mitchell’s conservator, released a statement through official website JoniMitchell.com: “Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm. 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 was appointed Mitchell’s conservator in May.

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.
