Rosie O’Donnell has revealed that she suffered a heart attack last week.
Calling it a “miracle” she’s still alive, Rosie O’Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home. O’Donnell, 50, credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in ads. “Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally,” she wrote Monday in her usual verse form on her blog. O’Donnell said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. In a statement on Monday, her rep Cindi Berger tells PEOPLE, “She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.” “They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here,” she wrote.
