ARNIE MUCH BETTER, BUT NOT GREAT YET, AFTER HEART SURGERY
In a video posted on Twitter, Schwarzenegger provided an update on his health, adding that it’ll be some time before he feels ‘great’
Veteran actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has thanked his fans for their support after undergoing a heart surgery and said he was feeling “much better” now.
The Terminator star posted a video on his official Twitter account and offered an update on his health, along with a tweet, “Thank you all for caring. We are moving forward!”
“I just want you to know that I’m feeling much better. I can’t say, even with my positive attitude, that I’m great, because I’m not great yet. Great is a totally different level. But I’m good. I feel good. I get good care, good doctors, good nurses. Everything is fantastic,” he said.
The video also shows the 70year-old actor sitting in front of a chess board. He said he was playing the game to help “freshen my mind and my memory a little bit”.
“And we move forward. So I will stay in touch with all of you. And thank you all for being such jewels,” he added.
Last week, Schwarzenegger’s spokesperson, Daniel Ketchell, had said that the actor “underwent a planned procedure to replace a pulmonic valve that was originally replaced due to a congenital heart defect in 1997.”
Ketchell further added that Schwarzenegger’s pulmonic valve was “successfully replaced”, and that the star “is currently recovering from the surgery, and is in stable condition”.
