Stories have only just been confirmed that Rosie O'Donnell, known for her stand up as well as her latest venture as a chat show host, had suffered a heart attack last week, claiming she was saved by a TV advert.
In a somewhat unusual form of statement, O'Donnell took to her blog where she posted a 15 verse poem detailing the events of her attack.
Simply titled 'My Heart Attack' the poem goes on to describe how she felt chest pains and aches in her arms and based on the information she saw on the TV accquired the appropriate medication and sought medical help from doctors.
“I took some bayer aspirin/thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally” she wrote
O'Donnell revealed she first felt the pain after helping a large woman get out of her car, an omen which Rosie describes as “the ghost of christmas future/me.”
She continued by describing the event as a 'miracle' saying: “I did not call 911/ 50% of women having heart attacks never call 911/ 200,000 women die of heart attacks/ every year in the US/ by some miracle i was not one of them/ the next day I went to a cardiologist/ the dr did an EKG and sent me to the hospital/where a stent was put in.”
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, a representative for O'Donnell said: “Rosie is home and resting comfortably."
O'Donnell signed off her poem by saying: “know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/CALL 911/save urself xxx”.
We're glad Rosie's doing well.
