Jovita Moore is resting and recovering ahead of her move to a rehab facility after undergoing brain surgery one week ago.
Channel 2 Action News reports she is expected to remain in the hospital through Friday, April 23, when she will move to a rehab facility to continue her healing process.
Jovita was diagnosed with two small brain tumors after noticing neurological symptoms on April 12.
Just before going on air that day, Jovita told Channel 2’s Justin Farmer that she wasn’t feeling great.
“I was really concerned about why all of a sudden I was forgetful, disoriented and just not feeling myself. Feeling like I was in a fog and really wanting to get out of that fog,” Jovita said.
Later, as she walked through a grocery store parking lot, she felt lightheaded. “I was walking. I remember walking across parking lot and feeling like I wasn’t going to make it to the door. I was walking like in quicksand,” Jovita said.
“It was a blessing in disguise that I almost passed out walking into Publix,” Jovita said.
A brain scan revealed the brain tumors.
“It’s significant. It’s gonna be a lot,” Jovita said before the surgery. “We had to start then having a conversation about what that was and what that meant.”
“Not sure when I’ll be back on air but when I’m able, I will be,” she said.
