According to her good friend, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell is “making good progress”.
Rolling Stone reports that Collins posted the following 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.”
Last week, 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.
Posted on the artist’s official website, the last official statement regards Mitchell’s health came on June 28th. It stated, “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.”
