Rosie O’Donnell Suffers Heart Attack

Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack, she revealed via poem on her blog today. O'Donnell said it happened after she helped a heavy woman out of her car last week:

Rosiea few hours later my body hurt
 i had an ache in my chest
both my arms were sore
everything felt bruised

muscular – i thought
strained or pulled tissue
i went about my day
the pain persisted

i became nauseous
my skin was clammy
i was very very hot
i threw up

maybe this is a heart attack
i googled womens heart attack symptoms
i had many of them
but really? – i thought – naaaa

O'Donnell took aspirin but did not call 911 and expressed regret for not doing so in the poem:

my LAD was 99% blocked
they call this type of heart attack
the Widow maker
i am lucky to be here

know the symptoms ladies
listen to the voice inside
the one we all so easily ignore
CALL 911

save urself

Said O'Donnell's rep to People magazine: "She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky."
