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.— Mr. Bob Odenkirk (@mrbobodenkirk) July 30, 2021
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.
Odenkirk who collapsed this Tuesday is now back to a conscious state and is in recovery. A few hours after the collapse, the multiple Emmy-nominated actor's representative had confirmed that the star was stable. On the star's latest health update, a fan commented, "Most of us had small heart attacks at the news. Happy to hear you're well." Others continued to send wishes.
