Bob Odenkirk has some good news to share.

The Better Call Saul star, 58, gave an update on his health a week and a half after suffering a small heart attack on set late last month.

"I am doing great," he tweeted Friday night. "I've had my very own 'It's a wonderful life' week of people insisting I make the world slightly better."

"Wow! Thank you, I love everyone right now but let's keep expectations reasonable!" Odenkirk added.

On July 27, the actor was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the New Mexico set of the beloved AMC series, which is currently in production on its sixth and final season.

"We can confirm Bob is in stable condition after experiencing a heart related incident," Odenkirk's reps told PEOPLE in a prior statement. "He and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side."

"The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of well wishes and ask for their privacy at this time as Bob works on his recovery," the statement continued.

After his heart attack, Odenkirk then shared a message of his own on Twitter days later, confirming that he was going to be okay following the medical scare.

"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 wrote.

"I had a small heart attack. But I'm going to be ok thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery. 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," he continued.
