Nearly three months after Joni Mitchell was found unconscious at her home, the singer's rep revealed she is "getting better each day" and is expected to make a full recovery from her brain aneurysm.
On Sunday, June 28, the 71-year-old's conservator, Leslie Morris, took to her official website to post the following update on her health.

"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," the statement read.
Last week, David Crosby — who dated Joni in the 1960s — claimed the folk music icon was "not speaking yet." "How much she's going to come back and when, I don't know and I'm not going to guess," the 73-year-old told The Huffington Post of her condition.

Joni was found unconscious in her LA home on Tuesday, March 31. "Joni is still in the hospital — but she comprehends, she’s alert, and she has her full senses... Joni is a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up the fight. Please continue to keep Joni in your thoughts," a message posted to her website that week revealed.
