In the roughly seven months since Joni Mitchell suffered a brain aneurysm, we’ve received updates on her health from all kinds of people: her attorney, the person who runs her website, her best friend Leslie Morris—even David Crosby! But this week’s update came from someone new: Judy Collins.

In a statement published Wednesday to her Facebook, the singer provided a reassuring update on her friend’s health. Collins wrote:

I have just heard from a close mutual friend that Joni is walking, talking, painting some, doing much rehab every day, and making good progress—I have another friend who went through something similar-it does take a long time, three years for my friend, who has really totally recovered professionally and personally. I will try my best to see our songbird when I am in LA in the coming weeks—

So—some good news!!

Thanks for the update, Judy! I could drink a case of good news like this.
