Rosie O’Donnell has suffered a heart attack last week! Thankfully, she is okay and has been recovering at home.
She said that she was able to survive the “Widowmaker” heart attack after doing a quick Google search of her symptoms. She was advised by a commercial to take a Bayer aspirin and as it turns out, it could’ve saved her life.
On her official blog, she wrote, “Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally.”
After realizing her symptoms, she went to the doctor and had a stent inserted. She learned that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. Her rep said, “She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.”
Rosie went on to write, “They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here.”
She said that her health problems started when she helped “an enormous woman” out of her car in a parking lot. She said that her chest started aching and both of her arms were feeling sore. She said that she became nauseated and had clammy skin.”
She said, “Maybe this is a heart attack. i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa.”
Rosie also urged women to get themselves checked out. She added, “By some miracle i was not one of them. Know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/CALL 911/save urself.”
