dan in the past i have taken metal lathe and screwed it to the wood lathe
very slowly to maintain the integrity of any existing wood lathe left in the wall. I have taken a vaccuum and cleaned all the old mud and used a sponge
dipped in thinset to smear thinset into every nook and cranny while immediately covering with fresh mud to acheive the best bond possible.
What mike says goes hand in hand, the fiber glass tape will help bond the cold joint.

Opie, since it's on the headboard wall, use rebar instead of lath.
