Joni Mitchell Condition Recovery : Singer Makes Remarkable Progress After Brain Aneurysm

Joni Mitchell Condition Recovery : Singer Makes Remarkable Progress After Brain Aneurysm

Joni Mitchell — Condition Improving … Full Recovery Expected.

The 71-year-old folk singer is currently recovering at home after suffering an aneurysm just over three months ago.

Although there have been conflicting reports about the true status of Joni’s health, new legal documents obtained by People magazine have highlighted a promising prognosis.

“When I arrived she was seated at her kitchen table feeding herself lunch,” Joni’s attorney Rebecca J. Thyne wrote in the court papers, which were filed on July 2. “She also told me that she receives excellent care from caregivers round-the-clock. 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.”

Joni’s longtime friend Leslie Morris was appointed her temporary conservator in May. And lawyer Rebecca suggested in the most recent legal filing that Leslie’s conservatorship be made permanent because Joni cannot make “informed medical decisions” on her own.

The iconic Blue singer was rushed to hospital in Los Angeles on March 31, after being found unconscious at her residence.

Her friend David Crosby, of rock band Crosby, Stills & Nash, was the first to reveal she had an aneurysm, making the revelation while speaking to HuffPost Live in May.

David also lent his unwavering support for Joni during her rehabilitation process.

“She’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury,” he told the outlet. “She’s a tough girl and very smart. So, how much she’s going to come back and when, I don’t know and I’m not going to guess. I love her. She’s probably the best of us – probably the greatest living singer-songwriter.”
