Rosie O’Donnell Is Recovering At Home After Having a Heart Attack Last Week
Rosie O'Donnell took her to blog yesterday to let everyone know she is recovering at home after suffering a heart attack last Tuesday!
I was shocked to hear the news, and wondered how did I miss something like this happening. Rosie said that he was helping a woman who asked her for help getting out of her car in a parking lot. A few hours later her body hurt, she had an ache in her chest and both arms were sore. Her hands felt clammy and she threw up. If this were happening to you, would you call 911 or research online what might be going on?
Rosie, decides not to call 911 but takes to searching the internet. She did take a Bayer aspirin, because she had seen a commercial that recommends people to do so when they think they are having a heart attack.
"Thank god. Saved by a TV commercial. Literally."
The next day Rosie went to her cardiologist and found that an artery was 90% blocked. The doctor told her she suffered an attack that is commonly knows as "The WidowMaker." They opened up her artery with a stent.
"I am lucky to be here. Know the symptoms ladies, listen to the voice inside. The one we all so easily ignore. CALL 911."
You can read Rosies's Blog here. I would like to mention that her reap says she is now home and resting comfortably. "She is very, very lucky."
Sometimes we need to learn a lesson the hard way. We may be bullheaded and think nothing serious is wrong, but you do really want to take that chance, especially when it could be a matter of life and death?!
