Joni Mitchell Moved to Rehab, “Improving” After Brain Aneurysm

Confusing report on the sudden collapse of Joni Mitchell. Usually an UNBURST aneurysm doesn't cause symptoms like unconsciousness or difficulty with speech. If it bursts, it's a subarachnoid hemorrhage and definitely a form of stroke (hemorrhagic) -- and causes great risk for the more common kind of stroke (ischemic). Seems like her spokespeople are trying to convey that Joni did NOT have an ischemic stroke without really understanding the medical stuff, although why that's so important to convey is a little mysterious since the type of stroke has little to do with your odds of recovering fully.

Yeah, I read this report and it's still quite confusing to me.

Does she have any chance of recovering?
