Former President George W. Bush said Friday that he is "feeling pretty good" after undergoing heart surgery earlier this month.

"I wish I was a teenager, so I could be out on my mountain bike today, but I'm slowly recovering," he said on Fox News Friday morning.

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.
