Odenkirk took to social media to assure his fans that he was on the mend.
“Hi. It’s Bob. Thank you. To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week,” Odenkirk tweeted. “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 added on Twitter that he had “a small heart attack. “
“I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon,” he tweeted.
Odenkirk’s friend, David Cross, tweeted that Odenkirk was in good spirits and was even joking around.
