The Better Call Saul actor, 58, tweeted on Saturday, August 7, “I am doing great.  I’ve had my very own ‘It’s a wonderful life’ week of people insisting I make the world slightly better.”

Odenkirk continued in his post, “Wow! Thank you, I love everyone right now but let’s keep expectations reasonable!”

The Breaking Bad alum previously confirmed he was on the mend in July via Twitter, writing, “Hi. It’s Bob. Thank you. To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me. It’s overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much.”

Odenkirk explained that he had a small heart attack, but doctors were able to fix the blockage without surgery. “I’m going to be ok,” his July 30 tweet continued. “Also, AMC and SONYs support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.”

The writer’s comedy partner, David Cross, told his Twitter followers hours earlier that he “just got off the phone” with Odenkirk, who was “doing great.” He tweeted, “Joking and japing and joshing.  Both he and his family are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern everyone has shown. You will be hearing from him soon. But he’s doing really well!!!”

Two days prior, the Nebraska star’s son, Nick Odenkirk, first announced his dad “was going to be okay” via an Instagram Story.
