Rosie O’Donnell Says Her Doctors Can’t Believe She Survived Her Heart Attack

rosie-o-donnell-peopleThey didn’t understand why I didn’t die. Usually you die right away with this. I was in the critical unit and a friend of mine came to visit. I was half awake and she asked the nurse ‘how is she doing compared to everyone else?’ and the nurse said ‘excellent’. My friend said ‘how do you know?’ and the nurse said ‘because everyone else is dead!’ She never had a patient survive what I had. That really gave me pause and I started to think about how close I was to not surviving and you know, my kids.”

      Poor Rosie, so talented, so generous, so full of herself.

      I worked with Rosie on Nip/Tuck and she was polite and kind to me.

      People who say crass, judgmental things about her have never even met her!

      Sounds pretty terrifying; hope she never experiences anything like that again.

      Good luck, Rosie, and thank you for not spouting some tasteless crap about God sparing you because he has some “special” plans for you, as if he didn’t give a shit about all those who didn’t make it.

      She is obese but does not appear to be morbidly obese, that was probably stress that brought that on

      I wish her the best. I met her years ago when she had already become a star, and she was sweet, kind and down to earth. Feel better, Rosie, you have many fans!

      Well as I was once told, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
