Actress Rosie O’Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.
O’Donnell, who is 50-years-old, shared her experience on her blog today. In her blog post she revealed she suffered 99% artery blockage, resulting in a heart attack, last week in New York.
After experiencing some pain in her chest last Thursday, the actress did an Internet search for symptoms of a heart attack and decided to take some aspirin.
She wrote: “i took some bayer aspirin/thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally”.
The next day she went to the cardiologist and learned she had 99% artery blockage and suffered a heart attack.
O’Donnell’s rep Cindi Berger told People Monday, “She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.”
