He started his post by expressing his gratitude toward everyone who showed concern and care as he survived the alarming health emergency. He added that, amid the current hard time he faced, he feels the love of everyone.
Explaining what truly happened to him, Odenkirk revealed that he had a small heart attack. Still, he assured he is going to be okay.
