Joni Mitchell Reportedly 'Undergoing Daily Therapies' After Hospitalization

Despite varying reports, it appears as though Joni Mitchell has made "remarkable progress" per her attorney's statement. Mitchell has been hospitalized in Los Angeles since March 31.

The report comes after Mitchell was hospitalized for a brain aneurysm that manifested earlier this year. The singer-songwriter was transported to a local hospital after she was found unconscious in her home.

A recent statement from Mitchell's conservator, Leslie Morris, revealed that the musician was "undergoing daily therapies" at home after her release. However, this differs from another report made by David Crosby, who said the singer at the time was "not speaking yet" and even went to so far as to say, "How much she's going to come back and when ... I'm not going to guess."

Crosby dated Mitchell in the 1960s but also noted that he hasn't spoken to her personally recently.

However, her lawyer Rebecca J. Thyne reported after seeing Ms. Mitchell:

"When I arrived [at her home] she was seated at her kitchen table feeding herself lunch. 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."

Thus, the question still remains as to whom one should believe (as it's the job of her camp to make sure she looks "good" in the limelight).

Nonetheless, it's a wonderful step forward for the legend as she comes back from a most undeserved medical setback.

The legendary Canadian singer-songwriter, 71, is best known for hits like "Woodstock," "Both Sides, Now" and "Big Yellow Taxi." She also recently had a fashion moment with the ever-famous Saint Laurent.
