Less than a week after leaving a hospital, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he's "good."

The actor and former California governor tweeted a video Thursday thanking well-wishers for their support after undergoing heart surgery March 29, according to The Associated Press.

“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,” Schwarzenegger said. “I really appreciate that very much, and you're very kind.”

Sitting at a chessboard, which he says he plays to keep his mind fresh, he gave viewers an update on how he's feeling.

“I just wanted you to know that I’m feeling much better," Schwarzenegger said. "I can’t say, even with my positive attitude, that I’m great, because I’m not great yet. Great is at a totally different level. But I’m good. I feel good ... everything is fantastic.”

He ends by promising to keep everyone updated on his health.

Thursday's tweet was Schwarzenegger's first about his health since April 2, when he first posted about his procedure.
