    Wonder what the Donald has to say....


    I definitely have a problem with her stating that she helped an "enormous" woman out of a car. It suggests blame on the woman. And by emphasizing her size, rather than simply saying she "helped a woman..."--which would still reveal earlier physical excersion--she had to label the woman almost as if to suggest she, herself, does not have weight related health issues. Bollocks.


    Why does she write like an illiterate child?


    Aspirin can indeed save a life. Medics don't arrive right away, and aspirin is a blood thinner. Aspirin has saved a life many, many times. I worked on a heart floor and I have heard the words spoken by a doctor more than ten times. And as far as her coronary artery being 99% blocked and her not knowing it- the only way to know that is to be cathed. You can only be cathed if you have symptoms. Heart health isn't screened unless you have symptoms. So she did everything right and is alive to tell the tale.


    Admit it, Rosie. That "enormous woman" you helped out of the car was YOURSELF! How could you think a fata$$ like yourself couldn't have a heart attack? Denial much?


    I doubt aspirin saved her life. Call an ambulance; don't be shy. Medics have WAY better clot busters plus oxygen. How fast that starts determines how much of your heart dies and what kind of life you have afterwards. Unfortunately, many women and some men (me) don't have the usual symptoms: chest pain moving into neck or shoulder. Also look for pale skin, shortness of breath, weakness. BTW, 99% blockage is after the attack, probably from a clot blowing in from somewhere else.


    Love her or hate her she is still a human!!! Y do ppl have to b so dam mean?!


    Her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked? Has she never, ever had a health screening? Isn't that something that would be found?


    She's lucky and the rest of the world is unlucky...


    Her personality isn ' t helping her .
