In the poem, O'Donnell writes she's "happy to be alive." She didn't call 911 after experiencing body pain. Instead, she took aspirin and on the following day visited a cardiologist, who sent her to a hospital to get her "99% blocked" left anterior descending artery remedied.

"Know the symptoms, ladies. Listen to the voice inside -- the one we all so easily ignore. CALL 911," she urges in the poem.
