Comedienne, Rosie O’Donnell is very luck that she is alive today after she had suffered a heart attack the week of August 17, 2012.The fifty year actress had opened up about her health scare Tuesday August ‘4, 2012 on her Rosie.com blog.
She din’t think it was cardiac arrest so she just took some aspirin for relieve of the pain. Writing in verse form, she states,
“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”.
O’Donnell did not call an ambulance and instead waited to see her cardiologist the following day (15Aug12). She was sent to the hospital to have a stent put in and the star admits,
“i am lucky to be here”.
Her representative Cindi Berger claims O’Donnell is now recovering from the incident in Los Angeles, telling People.com, “
She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.”
It has been a bad month for her as she tells her Michelle Rounds had been diagnosed with rare cancer-like desmoid tumours and had undergone surgery in June, 2012.
