10:27 am
so she has to try and get that we're getting word of a back as she's swimming. you lose about a half a liter of planned explosion in new york where they're building another subway. we'll take you there, next. try. fluid every half hour. whether it's supporting a delaware nonprofit that's providing training and employment opportunities, she's tried this four times as investing in the revitalization of a neighborhood in the bronx, you mentioned. again, it was in part the weather chad was talking about and these jellyfish stings. look at those pictures, we have or providing the financing to help a couple showing how much her face was sort of torn up by a beloved san diego bakery expand, these jellyfish stings. it doesn't just look bad. what's important to communities across the country it's also potentially medically is important to us. problematic because, you know, and we're proud to work you have to breathe through your with all of those who are creating a stronger future mouth. you're doing it under challenging conditions. you can get swelling due to the for everyone. jellyfish stings on your lips and tongue. it can be a problem. i think, you know, she was pulled out of the water sunday night the first time. >> right. >> because of weather. >> she was on the boat for a while. got back in, and 12:55 this morning, the same thing, she got out of the boat, but this time they waited a few hours at 100% natural ingredients like roasted peanuts, sunrise. they said, you know what, it's not going to happen. >> the last time she needed, creamy peanut butter, and a rich dark chocolate flavor. what, four liters of -- what is plus, 10 grams of protein. it going to take for her to so it's energy straight from nature to you. recover this go around? >> last time she had four liters nature valley protein bars.
10:28 am
pretty quickly after the swim, so, you know, it's probably -- it's ongoing right now. i mean, she's still sort of recuperating even as we speak right now on a boat heading back toward key west. i think they just give as much fluids to get the blood pressure back up, heart rate back down. i don't know exactly what it's going to be. you lose an inordinate amount of fluids, despite how much she drinks during the swim. >> you have to love her spirit, really, her undying secret. let me ask withdryou this. she's going to be 63 tomorrow. her birthday is tomorrow. can she physically do this? a 63-year-old woman. is it possible to do this swim? >> you know, they calculated she would be swimming for 60 hours if she were to do it and not get blown off course and have good weather. from beginning to end, she was 63 hours. again, she got on the boat a couple times in the middle of all this. you know, i think at this point from a physical standpoint, she's proven something, i think, very important. a woman in her 60s has come very close to doing this now a few times. i think it's mental in her case. she talked to us last year and

11:05 am
symptoms, pain. some of it in her arms and she felt clammy and nauseated. she knew enough to take an aspirin. she read take an aspirin. she didn't call her doctors or 911. the next day she calls the doctor, goes in. they get an ekg which shows evidence she probably had a heart attack. >> probably had a heart attack. that's what the doctors are saying. >> what that means is some heart muscle has died. you can test for that with a blood test to see if you sthee. i think they did see evidence of that. when they did the katherization. they saw a narrowing that looked like that. take a look. that's the stint. you die late open the blood vessel and leave that scaffolding in place to hold it open. >> she talks about nausea,
11:06 am
vomiting. are those symptoms different in women than men? >> yes. if you're at risk or starting to have unusual symptoms that come on suddenly, you need two worry whether you're man or woman. typically the more crushing chest pain for men. this is what she described in the blog. for men typically it's chest pain. for women it can be chest pain but also just being tired. it can be back pain. it can be the nausea that rosie o'donnell described. if you're at risk or have a family history or worried about it and something comes on that's unusual and comes on quickly, that's something you need to get checked out. >> let's pick up where the graphic left off. she said i became sick, my skin
11:07 am
was clammy. i googled women's heart attack symptoms. i had many of them but i thought nah. at the end she said if you think something's happening please call 911. >> more women are likely to die of heart disease than men. people don't realize that and part of what you describe. women blow this off. there's about 50% likely to call 911 if they're having a heart attack. 79% of the time they will call on behalf of somebody else. they recognize the symptoms of somebody else. >> need to worry about themselves. it's a great reminder for all of us. thank you very much. we appreciate it. as mitt romney and paul ryan hit the trail together when it comes to the economy their differences with president obama are pretty clear. the to give you a better idea of their background cnn compared romney and obama's resumes and
