Rosie O'Donnell suffers heart attack, writes a poem




Rosie O'Donnell announced she had a heart attack last Tuesday after she penned a poem titled "my heart attack" and posted it on her website, the New York Post reports. O'Donnell wrote about details of the incident and how it's a "miracle" that she is still alive.

According to the poem, O'Donnell was helping an "enormous woman struggling to get out of her car." A few hours later, she felt a pain in her chest and had sore arms. She then vomited. The next day, her cardiologist found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked, causing her to get a stent put in. At the end of the poem, O'Donnell urged women to know the symptons of a heart attack and call 911. "save urself," she wrote.

We're not making light of the situation, but we have to admit, this is sort of bizzare -- especially since O'Donnell writes it in a way that makes us want to laugh more than cry. Read the poem here and see for yourself.
