Joni Mitchell is “getting stronger each day” after being hospitalized earlier this week, a statement published on her website says.
The 71-year-old Canadian-born singer-songwriter was found unresponsive in her Los Angeles home on March 31.
A statement released on Joni Mitchell’s website on April 3 said the singer was “resting comfortably”.
“We are encouraged by her progress and she continues to improve and get stronger each day,” the statement said.
In December 2014, Joni Mitchell told Billboard magazine that she had a rare skin condition, Morgellons disease, which prevented her from performing.
“I can’t sing any more – don’t miss it. I can’t play any more – don’t miss it. I’ve got all these instruments laying around and hopefully one day I’ll pick them up,” Joni Mitchell was quoted as saying.
Morgellons is a controversial condition and is not recognized by mainstream medical authorities.
Sufferers say it is characterized by crawling and stinging sensations under the skin but many in the medical community believe it is a psychiatric disorder.
