Rosie O’Donnell reveals she suffered heart attack [Trunc]
NY Daily News ^ | August 20, 2012 | Cristina Everett

Posted on 08/22/2012 7:21:15 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Rosie O'Donnell says it's a "miracle" she's alive today.

The comedienne, 50, took to her blog on Monday to reveal she suffered a heart attack last week and is now at home recovering.

O'Donnell said her health problems began on Aug. 14 after she helped "an enormous woman" who was struggling to get out of her car in a parking lot in Nyack, N.Y.

"a few hours later my body hurt/ i had an ache in my chest," she wrote in her usual verse form. "both my arms were sore/everything felt bruised."

O'Donnell said she went on about her day despite feeling persistent pain.

"i became nauseous/my skin was clammy," she wrote. "i was very very hot/i threw up."

I think I’ll pray for her, just to piss her off.

Did she keep a spoon in the house? Spoons cause the majority of heart attacks.

Spoons in the home are far more likely to make a person fat than they are to save a person from starvation!

Spoon control needs to be enacted to end this type of senseless illness.

What a coincidence! I had a similar experience involving Rosie O’Donnell.

I dislike her intensely, but feel empathy for her and wouldn’t wish heart disease on anyone. Especially since I have a heart cath & possible stents next Thursday.

I am a 54 yr old female who is 120 lbs w/o diabetes and have been fit. So you never know, women have different symptoms then the classic male symptoms.

I think she ought to make a celebratory trip to “Fat Burger” and have a triple baconator with cheese, onions, more cheese, and some Ranch Dressing. Throw in a couple of bloomin’ onions, some fat fries and a big gulp chocolottofato milk shake. Repeat as necessary.

Sending prayers your way—so many, many factors play a roll in heart disease. Genetics being one.
Two years ago July,
My husband was 52, coaching our youngest son’s tournament baseball team (he was throwing BP to 12 year olds). Thought he had pulled a muscle; but the pain intensified. Then he kept feeling sicker to his stomach. I came home from work and somehow (still don’t know how it all fell into place) drive him to the ER. He had a 100% blockage of his LAD (what Rosie had) and was “having a heart attack.”. He was Coded in the ER and had emergency surgery (stents—just like RO’D). He has had a few set backs but is in good health now.

The thing is—and given what our family has been thru—we don’t know G-d’s plan. Maybe the Lord is working thru Rosie to help spread the knowledge of HA symptoms and what to do. Seriously—a teammate of my sons (the team my husband was pitching too) his dad awoke months later with similar symptoms—the boy said to his mom “remember what happened with Coach X?—they called EMS and the dad WAS having a HA (he survived and is well today too!)

One life, one recounting of a story, can touch so many others. I disagree with Rosie politically, but applaud (and send prayers her way) for cing forward with the knowledge of HAs.

Seeker—you will be fine. The procedures and meds today do wonderful things—thats why we have to keep medical care as it is NOW and NO ObamaCare!

Helping a fat woman struggling to get out of a car?

Was that fat woman wearing a gray slipcover from an armchair and sporting 3 chins?

I want to add that the care my husband received was at a small, suburban hospital. A triage nurse recognized the severity of his symptoms, he collapsed in the wheelchair, was called a Code Blue, was worked IMMEDIATELY by the ER staff, and was rushed into emergency surgery—and this happens (sadly) dozens of times a day in hospitals all over the country. People are being saved because just every hospital has cardio staffing and a cath lab/surgical theatre. That what is so damn scary about ObamaCare—advances made THAT SAVE lives will be done away with to save costs. For important things—like free birth control.

"I am lucky to be here," the mother of four wrote. "Know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/ CALL 911/save yourself."

Rosie, there is no such thing as "luck." God is trying to get your attention. He is not willling for anyone to perish. Jesus is your 911. Only He can save you.

Listen to the Voice inside/the One we all so easily ignore.

If you are on a statin, get off of it. Statins cause arterial calcification big time. Also increase you risk of type 2 diabetes significantly.

Ugh, I'll never forget the sight of tub 'o lard Rosie sitting in the front row at a NY Yankees playoff game years ago STUFFING her face big-time with fries, onion rings, and every other type of food imaginable. She was with a couple of her kids, and they were stuffing their faces as well.

She must have had no idea she was on camera. Hubby and I watched that entire game... she barely came up for air. She pigged out for hours. It was SO disgusting...

“I dislike her intensely, but feel empathy for her and wouldn’t wish heart disease on anyone. Especially since I have a heart cath & possible stents next Thursday.”

I absolutely agree 100%! I don’t wish ill health on anyone. And like you, I detest O’Donnell. Hell, at least Roseanne grows Macadamias.

BTW, three sets of stents and a (mild?) heart attack for me in the last six months. Cath and stenting is a piece of cake and you’ll feel WAY better once your heart starts working properly again. Only hard part is laying flat on your back afterwards for a bunch of hours to avoid the risk of the Femoral artery popping open from where the cath was inserted. Arrange up front with your doc to keep you heavily medicated throughout that ordeal so your whole body doesn’t go into one giant muscle spasm. Morphine then is good. So is a big dose of a benzo if it’s a drug you’re willing to take.

Afterwards, it’s Plavix and an aspirin every day for a year to reduce risk of drug-eluting stents from clotting. You’ll probably easily bruise from that, but it’s a hell of a lot better than the alternative.

Good luck, feel better, and live longer!
