There’s been barely any information about singer Joni Mitchell’s condition, since she was hospitalized on May 26th, however, musician David Crosby has recently revealed in a interview that she suffered from an aneurysm when she was hospitalized.
Crosby stated, “Nobody found her for a while. She took a terrible hit. To my knowledge she is not speaking yet… She’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury… 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.”
Mitchell was in intensive care and had undergone a surgical procedure, but a spokesperson said she was “awake and in good spirits,” and later released a statement saying, “Joni remains under observation in the hospital and is resting comfortably. We are encouraged by her progress and she continues to improve and get stronger each day.”
Mitchell claims to suffer from a rare condition called Morgellons disease. “Morgellons is constantly morphing,” she said. “There are times when it’s directly attacking the nervous system, as if you’re being bitten by fleas and lice. It’s all in the tissue and it’s not a hallucination. It was eating me alive, sucking the juices out. I’ve been sick all my life.” Crosby has had a bond with Mitchell since the 1960s. “I love her,” he stated. “She’s probably the best of us, probably the greatest living singer-songwriter.”
