Duane “The Bounty Hunter” Chapman was released from the hospital this week after a health scare — and is reportedly “resting comfortably.”

He also has responded to the outpouring of support since his wife, Beth Chapman, died over a month ago.

This blogger also misses Beth Chapman a lot.

She gave me one of my best interviews at a CPAC conference over a year ago, she and Duane — and I couldn’t have been prouder to know her.

She was such an inspiration, as she would take the time for others, pray with people and counsel them.

Duane “Dog” Chapman told news station KDVR in Denver, Colorado, that he was experiencing “chest pain,” that he “couldn’t breathe” — and that felt he like he had “run three or four miles” when he asked his assistant to drive him to the hospital near his Castle Rock home, Yahoo Entertainment reported.

Chapman said coping with the loss of his longtime love and TV partner Beth Chapman “is something you don’t pray you have to go through, let me tell ya,” the outlet also noted.

“While a heart attack was suspected, that was apparently ruled out. Further tests are pending to the root of his troubles — and are scheduled for Thursday and Friday.”

Chapman said the pain in his chest felt “much better now.”

“I’m going through some psychological things right now, so that doesn’t help.”

He continued, “There’s something haywire or it’s psychological. I don’t know. I guess things happen like that.”

“Basically, I had a broken heart,” he also told a reporter.
