Rosie O’Donnell Recovering from Heart Attack
TV personality Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home and “resting comfortably.”
O’Donnell took to her blog to write about the experience in verse form, saying the Internet and a TV commercial helped save her life. Rosie wrote, “i took some bayer aspirin/thank god/saved by a tv/commercial/literally…” Read the whole poem here.
The radio show host said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked.
She added that it was a "miracle" that she didn't die. "They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here.”
In a statement on Monday, Rosie’s rep said, "She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky."
Earlier this month, O'Donnell, 50, shared the news that her fiancée Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare affliction.
