Ford was being wheeled into Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC on Thursday ... where she's still getting treatment for head and foot wounds after Geneva Thomas allegedly attacked her while taping this week.
As we reported ... Geneva was arrested and booked for felony assault.
Ford sounds confused about what caused the attack, clearly still woozy 2 days after the brawl.
Ex-NBA Player Jeremy Tyler
My Baby Mama Punched Our Baby
... And Kicked My Pregnant Sis
10/24/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-NBA player Jeremy Tyler -- who was just released by the Lakers -- claims his baby mama went berserk and punched their 10-month-old child last week ... and now he's obtained a restraining order against her.
TMZ Sports has learned ... the 23-year-old -- who's expected to sign a deal to play in China -- filed court docs in L.A. asking for protection from Sukey Rowan ... a British national who Tyler's been with for years.
In the docs, Tyler says Rowan got violent during an altercation at his mother's house on October 18th -- when she showed up to the home before she was expected to be there and demanded to see their child.
"I brought [the child] outside and she swung at me and tried to hit me while I was holding our son," Tyler says ... "At one point she missed me and hit our son."
Tyler continues, "My sister tried to get between us, and she kicked my sister, who is nine months pregnant, in the stomach."
Tyler says he's not only concerned for his safety -- but worries that Rowan will take the child to the U.K. and that "I will never see him again."
Despite the allegations, Tyler says "I still love Sukey, but I cannot let my son and I live in danger because of her mental issues and violent temper."
A judge granted a temporary restraining order against Rowan -- which also bars her from leaving the country with their kid.
We reached out to Rowan for comment -- so far, no word back.

Mark Wahlberg's Wife
Ripped by 'Cancer' Patient
In Parking Spot War [VIDEO]
10/22/2014 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mark Wahlberg's wife got into a bizarre war over a Beverly Hills parking spot -- and her rival even played the cancer card to shame her ... but you gotta see the twist because we're not sure who's in the wrong.
The driver of a black SUV went off on Rhea Durham ... claiming Mark's wife swooped in and stole a curbside parking spot out from under her. Once Rhea walked away, the woman told our camera guy she's a breast cancer patient, and she was trying to get to her doctor for a chemo treatment.
Watch ... the sob story does make Rhea look heartless -- until we find out why the driver was REALLY there. Let's just say it turns out she wasn't going to the doctor at that moment ... and her sympathy points are shaky at best.
Still, IF Rhea really stole the spot (there's no video proof) -- major faux pas.

Here's what we know ... a man named Daniel says he was partying at Tao nightclub in the Venetian in the early hours of October 19th when he tried to take a cell phone pic of the crowd.
According to a statement Daniel gave to Tao security, the man says Blake (who was partying at the club with his L.A. Clippers teammates) was bothered by the flash of the camera -- and "grabbed my phone with one hand."
Daniel says he didn't let go of the phone because his ID and credit card were attached to it -- so Blake grabbed his neck and began to squeeze while demanding Daniel give up his phone "or else."
According to the statement, the two eventually separated after Blake took the phone -- and when Daniel tried to ask for it back, Blake struck again ... grabbing his neck and squeezing for a second time.
Daniel says when security finally got to the scene -- Blake told them, "Get him the f**k out of this club."
Daniel says Blake then "slapped me in the right side of my face."
After he left the club, Daniel filed a battery report with the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. He says cops came to his hotel the next day and spoke with him for about an hour.
So far, attempts to reach Blake for comment have been unsuccessful.
