Rosie explained that she hit the Internet only to realize she was experiencing some women's heart attack symptoms, prompting her to take an aspirin.

"i took some bayer aspirin/thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," she continued.

She eventually sought medical attention the next day and a doctor placed a stent in her heart, letting her know one of her arteries was "99% blocked."

"they call this type of heart attack/the Widow maker," she noted. "I am lucky to be here."
