Former US President Bill Clinton Wednesday updated his 13.2 million Twitter followers about his health after spending six days in a Southern California hospital.

The 75-year-old tweeted a video in which he said that he was "glad to be back home," and offered appreciation for the medical experts at the University of California Irvine Medical Center for the "absolutely wonderful care" they provided to him when he was hospitalized.

Clinton added that he was doing great, and "enjoying this beautiful fall weather," while being "on the road to recovery," reported Fox News. He also had a message for his fans. He wanted to remind everyone to take the time to "listen to your bodies and care for yourselves." He said that everyone has work to do, and everybody has an important role to play in life.

Clinton, who was released from the hospital Sunday, also mentioned that he is going to do his "best to be around to keep doing the most good" he can for "a lot longer."

According to a source, he was hospitalized after he started feeling fatigued, according to PEOPLE. The source added that he was diagnosed with a urological infection at the hospital that had turned into a broader infection.

Clinton's physicians, Dr. Alpesh Amin and Dr. Lisa Bardack, said in a statement that as part of his treatment for the infection, he had been "administered IV antibiotics and fluids." The doctors said last week that he was kept in the hospital for continuous monitoring, and after two days of treatment, his white blood cell count was trending down and he was responding well to the antibiotics. They shared that the medical team from California was constantly communicating with Clinton's New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist, to ensure he recovered.

Once his condition improved, Amin said in a statement that Clinton's "fever and white blood cell count are normalized and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics." He added that his medical team was honored to have treated the former President and "will continue to monitor his progress."

This isn't the first visit to the hospital as he has had medical issues before. Clinton underwent a quadruple bypass operation in 2004, and six years later, he had a pair of stents placed into a coronary artery, according to
