Former President George W. Bush said Friday that he is "feeling pretty good" after undergoing heart surgery earlier this month.
Bush had a stent placed into his left anterior descending artery on Aug. 6, after a routine checkup discovered a blockage. Bush said he had no chest pains prior to that discovery.
"I thought I'd be healthy forever, and then aging got me," he said.
Bush was interviewed just before a charity golf tournament in Texas, and was asked by anchor Brian Kilmeade whether he plans to spoil his new granddaughter, Mila.
"Yes," he said.
