Rosie O’Donnell on the mend after heart attack
21 August 2012

A day after she revealed publicly that she had suffered a heart attack last week, Rosie O’Donnell reached out on Twitter Tuesday (21 August) to express her gratitude.

‘Good morning all – thanks for all the good wishes!!!’ she tweeted. O’Donnell also described herself as ‘happy’ and ‘grateful.’

She shared that she spent the day ‘listening to Barry Manilow – painting – feeling good.’

O’Donnell shared on her blog Monday (20 August) that she suffered a heart attack shortly after she encountered ‘an enormous woman’ in a New York parking lot who had gotten stuck as she struggled to get out of her car.

When she got home few hours later, her body hurt, she had an ache in her chest and both arms felt sore. She became nauseous, her skin was clammy, she felt very hot and threw up

She googled women’s heart attack symptoms and realized she had many of them. She took some Bayer Aspirin but did not call 911. The next day, O’Donnell went to see a cardiologist who did an EKG. She was then sent to a hospital where a stent was put in.
