Rosie O'Donnell Is Recovering At Home After Having a Heart Attack Last Week.
ROSIE O'DONNELL is recovering at home after suffering a HEART ATTACK last Tuesday. She wrote all about it on her blog yesterday. Rosie said it all started when an "enormous woman" asked her for help getting out of her car in a parking lot. A few hours later, Rosie says, quote, "my body hurt, I had an ache in my chest both my arms were sore, everything felt bruised." She added that her skin felt clammy and she threw up. Rosie researched her symptoms online, and while she didn't call 911, she did take some Bayer aspirin, because she'd seen a commercial that recommends people do so when they think they're having a heart attack. She says, quote, "Thank god. Saved by a TV commercial. Literally." Instead, she went to her cardiologist the next day and found that an artery was 99% blocked. The doctor told her she'd suffered an attack that's commonly known as THE WIDOWMAKER. So they opened it up with a stent. Rosie says, quote, "I am lucky to be here. Know the symptoms ladies, listen to the voice inside. The one we all so easily ignore. CALL 911." Her rep adds, quote, "She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky." This has been a rough month for Rosie. She recently announced that her fiancée Michelle Rounds is suffering from desmoid tumors . . . a rare cancer-like condition. As a result, they decided to postpone their wedding until next summer.
