Ron Jeremy is feeling much better, and he wants the world to know.
The adult-film star suffered an aneurysm near his heart late last month and had to undergo two emergency surgeries. He was in critical condition, but he is now recovering.
Jeremy was even feeling well enough to take a picture with one of his nurses, both giving a thumbs up to the camera.
"Thank you ALL for the concern & well wishes, I'm doing very well thanks to modern technology!" he said in a statement sent to FOX 411.
According to his rep, Mike Esterman, Jeremy is “doing quite well and cracking jokes.”
Esterman added the actor wanted everyone to know his heath is improving.
“He's touched and delighted by the outpouring of support from fans and media alike,” Esterman stated.
On Tuesday, Jeremy's management tweeted from his verified account to update fans.
"Ron remains in intensive care at LA Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but is awake and on the road to recovery, in spite of this ordeal."
In addition to his adult film career, Jeremy appeared on “The Surreal Life,” “Tosh.O” and “Chappelle’s Show.”
