Bob Odenkirk's daughter made him a 'Memento'-style chart to help with his memory while he was in hospital following a heart attack.

The 60-year-old 'Breaking Bad' star was rushed to hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico in July 2021 after he was taken ill on the set of his TV show 'Better Call Saul' and he credits his daughter Erin with helping him during his recovery as he work up every day struggling to recall the previous events.

Bob revealed she left him notes in the style of Christoper Nolan's movie 'Memento' in which Guy Pearce's character uses photos and tattoos to help with his amnesia.

He told "You made a chart for me of what happened the last week. Every day I woke up and I didn't know what had happened to me or kind of almost what was happening, and Erin made a nice chart it was her version of the movie 'Memento', where I could look up and see: 'You had a heart attack, these people visited, then you came to, you had the surgery'."

She also made sure he didn't go back to work until he was ready. Bob added: "Almost every morning you would wake up and try to get out of bed to go walk to set to finish shooting your scenes. That was a big part of the recovery was trying to get you to stay in the room and sleep and not go to work."

Bob underwent two surgeries and was deemed well enough to go back to work in September of 2021 to finish up filming on the final series of 'Better Call Saul'.

He recently revealed the experience gave him a massive boost as he felt inspired to make the most of his second chance at life.

Bob told NPR: "I came out of it with a strangely fresh energy towards my whole life, like I was born again. Like: 'Hey, everybody! ... Let's go back to work and make stuff!'"

He added: "I really want to stay in touch with what happened there because it really was a great reconnection to being alive. And so I'd love to ruminate on it every day and try to reconnect."
