Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack

Rosie O'Donnell admitted on her blog yesterday that she had a heart attack last week:
i became nauseous
my skin was clammy
i was very very hot
i threw up

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

my LAD was 99% blocked
they call this type of heart attack
the Widow maker
i am lucky to be here
Wow, scary. If a heart attack can strike someone in picture perfect health like Rosie O'Donnell (I mean, seriously, can she stop talking for one second about how fun triathlons are?), it can literally strike anyone. None of us are safe.
