Update, July 8:  Joni Mitchell’s attorney says the singer “has made remarkable progress”.

As NME reports, Rebecca J Thyne described her recent visit to Mitchell’s home, telling People: “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 beloved singer is “getting better each day”.

Joni Mitchell is expected to make a full recovery from the aneurysm suffered earlier this year. On Friday, Mitchell’s longtime friend David Crosby gave an interview where he claimed that Mitchell was still unable to speak.

The singer’s conservator, Leslie Morris, released a statement through Mitchell’s website on Sunday, clarifying that she is on the mend and is in fact “speaking well”.

“Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm. However, details that have emerged in the past few days are mostly speculative,” the statement reads. “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.”

Mitchell, 71, was found unconscious in her Los Angeles home on March 31. She was admitted to a local hospital after which conflicting reports emerged concerning her health. [via Billboard]
