After calling it a “miracle” that she’s alive, Rosie O’Donnell is now recovering at her home after suffering a heart attack.

According to People, the 50-year-old star researched her painful symptoms online and popped a Bayer aspiring to ease the attack.

The former “View” host blogged, “Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally.”

After having a stent inserted into her heart, Rosie’s rep Cindi Berger released a statement, which read, “"She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.”

Miss O’Donnell later posted, "They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here."
