Joni, who is 71 years old, regained consciousness on the way to the hospital in an ambulance, and is reportedly doing ok. “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,” says Joni’s Twitter account.
