Bob Odenkirk is feeling the love after suffering a small heart attack earlier this week.

The actor, 58, shared on Twitter, Friday, that he's going to be okay following the medical scare, which led him to be hospitalized on Tuesday after he collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul.

Odenkirk gave a shoutout to his doctors, as well as those who have been sharing their well wishes since news of the incident.

"Hi. It's Bob. Thank you. To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week," Odenkirk wrote on Twitter, saying that "the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me" has been "overwhelming."

"But I feel the love and it means so much," he wrote.

Odenkirk's heart attack happened while he's in New Mexico filming the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul, the popular Breaking Bad spinoff. In it, Odenkirk stars as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, a role that has earned him four lead actor Emmy nominations.

Production on the final season began in April, Odenkirk previously told James Corden, but it's unclear how much more filming remains, or how his heart attack will impact the rest of shooting.

The star said in his tweet Friday that he is "going to take a beat to recover but I'll be back soon."
