Rosie O’Donnell has revealed she suffered a heart attack last week and is very lucky to be alive.
The 50-year-old actress/comedienne blogged about her scary ordeal last Tuesday, revealing she suffered cardiac arrest and and took a Bayer aspirin.
O’Donnell wrote on her blog, “i became nauseous/my skin was clammy/i was very very hot/i threw up. Maybe this is a heart attack/i googled womens (sic) heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa”.
Rosie didn’t call an ambulance but visited her cardiologist the next day. O’Donnell was admitted to the hospital and had a stent put in to clear the blockage.
She later blogged, “they call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here”.
Her representative Cindi Berger said O’Donnell is now recovering at home.
This has been a tough few months for the star, who just recently revealed her fiance, Michelle Rounds, has been diagnosed with desmoid tumors and had surgery in June. r
