"Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good!," the 'Dogma' director tweeted.

Kevin Smith on Wednesday announced that he was back home after being hospitalized following a major heart attack. 

The actor and director suffered the medical emergency Sunday night after a public appearance. 

"Home again, home again, jiggety-jig!," Smith tweeted. "Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! Thank you for all the kind words, folks - from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2!" 

The tweet bookends the scary journey since the Clerks director broke the news of the attack on his Twitter feed. 

"After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack," Smith wrote Monday. "The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!"

Somewhat recovered, Smith on Tuesday did a 20-minute video on Facebook in which he talked about the terrifying experience. Saying he was never in that much pain, Smith thought he was having a bad reaction to milk at first before not being able to breathe. 

Following the initial news, there was an outpouring of support from Hollywood, with numerous celebrities wishing Smith well and telling him they were thankful the situation was not worse.
