Bob Odenkirk is on the mend after collapsing on the set of “Better Call Saul.”

The 58-year-old actor took to Twitter late Friday to give fans an update on his health and thank them for their support.

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 tweeted to his nearly 800,000 followers.

“Wow! Thank you, I love everyone right now but let’s keep expectations reasonable!” he added.

In late July, the actor collapsed on the set of “Better Call Saul” in Culver City, California. Days later, he took  to social media to address the reports and thanked fans and loved ones for their well wishes.

“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,” he tweeted.

“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,” he continued in a subsequent message to fans. “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.”
