“It’s True: I’m Back!”
The Austrian-American film star and former California governor, 70, had a scheduled procedure to replace a valve at Cedars-Sinai hospital on Thursday.
Schwarzenegger is said to be recovering well and reportedly commented after waking from surgery: “I’m back.” His spokesman, Daniel Ketchell, said that Schwarzenegger was “in good spirits”.
He posted via Twitter:
It’s true: I’m back! I went to sleep expecting to wake up with a small incision and woke up with a big one – but guess what? I woke up, and that’s something to be thankful for. Thank you to the doctors & nurses. And I’m truly filled with gratitude for all of the kind messages.
