Joni Mitchell Hospitalized in L.A. After Being Found Unconscious
The 71-year-old is "awake and in good spirits"
Joni was found unconscious in her home this afternoon. She regained consciousness on the ambulance ride to an L.A. area hospital. She is currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits. More updates to come as we hear them. Light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way.
Little else is known at the moment, but Mitchell’s Twitter account has been posting periodic updates on the legend’s condition. A CBC reporter also allegedly spoke to a source in Mitchell’s camp:
I’m told now she’s resting in hospital and is among friends. A good sign.
