We're so glad she's OK!
Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week but is now recovering at home, she revealed on her blog today. "Thank god/saved by a tv commerical/literally," the 50-year-old writes.
Apparently the talk show host began to notice symptoms following her assistance of an "enormous woman" struggling to exit a car in NY on Aug. 14. Hours later, the funny woman began to experience chest pains, soreness in both arms, and clammy skin. She credits speedy Internet research and taking Bayer aspirin she'd seen recommended in an ad with her survival.
Doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked, so a stent was inserted in an emergency operation. "They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here," she explained of her condition.
This isn't the only health scare Miss O has experienced recently! Her fiancee, Michelle Rounds, was diagnosed with desmoid tumors earlier this month.
Get well soon Ro!
