Arnold Schwarzenegger was admitted to hospital and had to undergo surgery but he is back and letting the world know that he is doing much better as The Daily Mail reports. AmoMama does a follow up on the former governor.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 70, admitted in a video that he is not feeling ‘great’ after his open heart surgery, but he is recovering and letting his fans around the world know that he is going well. The actor who also served as governor of California from 2003 to 2011 was initially supposed to undergo a procedure to replace a valve being used to correct a congenital heart defect - but he ended up having open-heart surgery.
Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to thank his fans for the support and good wishes, letting everyone know he is getting better.
'Thank you so much for all your wishes and for all the cards and the phone calls and the emails and the texts and all this kind of stuff that I got from around the world. 'I really appreciate that very much and you're very kind. I just wanted 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.'
Schwarzenegger had the valve placed in 1997 and the surgery was meant to replace the same since it had already outlived its useful life. His spokesman said that: 'During that a procedure, an open-heart surgery team was prepared, as they frequently are in these circumstances, in case the catheter procedure was unable to be performed. Governor Schwarzenegger's pulmonic valve was successfully replaced.'
We at AmoMama are so glad that the actor is recovering well. Send your best wishes in comments.
