Rosie O'Donnell blogged some major gratitude Monday: The former daytime host revealed she suffered a heart attack last week.
What began as an act of kindness ended in the insertion of a stent, after doctors discovered a 99% blocked artery in O'Donnell's heart.
An "enormous" woman Rosie spotted in a Nyack, N.Y., parking lot had asked for help getting out of her car last Tuesday. O'Donnell obliged, writing in her free-form blog style, "it was not easy but together we did it she was up and on her way with gratitude."
"A few hours later my body hurt, I had an ache in my chest both my arms were sore, everything felt bruised," she said, adding that her skin felt clammy and she later threw up.
