Bob Odenkirk is feeling the love after his July 27 heart attack. And we love it.

The once-curmudgeonly "Better Call Saul" actor is getting all touchy-feely on Twitter as he recovers, making us love him all the more. After all, friends, family and fans were deeply concerned about the 58-year-old Odenkirk following dire news of his on-set collapse and hospitalization.

The recovering Odenkirk took a walk with "Better Call Saul" co-star Michael Mando on Aug. 12 and tweeted about, well, hugs and love.

"I keep getting good energy, hugs, love, from everyone, strangers, old friends," Odenkirk wrote. "I can't take all this goodness at once, but I guess I'll have to. Hope you are having a great day today."

In an Aug. 6 Twitter update, the once perma-smirking Odenkirk went all Jimmy Stewart.

"I am doing great," Odenkirk wrote to Twitter followers in an Aug. 6 update. "I’ve had my very own 'It’s a Wonderful Life' week of people insisting I make the world slightly better. Wow! Thank you."

Not that Odenkirk is getting too carried away with the abundant affection akin to the joy for Jimmy Stewart's safely-returned George Bailey in the Christmas classic "It's a Wonderful Life."

"I love everyone right now but let’s keep expectations reasonable!" Odenkirk wrote.

The anxiety over Odenkirk last month was a real-time social media phenom.

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston wrote on Instagram that he was “anxious all morning" waking up to the news of Odenkirk's collapse. Aaron Paul, Jesse Pinkman in the series, wrote fretfully on Instagram, "I love you my friend."

Worried friends and fans have been exhaling in relief since July 28 when son Nate Odenkirk tweeted the simple words, "He's going to be okay."

Since then, Mr. Show himself has made a slow return to Twitter, tweeting his own emotional reassurance and thanks to well-wishers on July 30.

"Hi. It's Bob. Thank you. 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 also thanked the doctors who took care of him and noted that he was going to take "a beat to recover."
