O’Donnell, 50, wrote on her blog that a week ago she was walking through a parking lot when she heard someone calling for help.
She saw “enormous woman struggling to get out of her car,” she said. O’Donnell, who blogged about the experience in verse, said she helped pull the woman out of her car, and hours later:
“my body hurt i had an ache in my chest both my arms were sore everything felt bruised.”
The pain continued, O’Donnell said, and she felt nauseous. Her skin became clammy and she felt hot and threw up. She searched for heart attack symptoms online and found that she had several of them. She wrote: “i took some bayer aspirin thank god saved by a tv commercial literally”
O’Donnell, who saw a cardiologist the next day, was told that she had a 99 percent blockage. She received a stent.
“they call this type of heart attack the Widow maker i am lucky to be here,” O’Donnell wrote. O’Donnell urged women to know the symptoms of a heart attack, and to do what she didn’t — call 911 — if they experience them.
