Billy Graham in Stable Condition at NC Hospital

Billy GrahamBilly Graham (BGEA)

Evangelist Billy Graham is being treated for bronchitis at a hospital near his home in Asheville, N.C.

The hospital reports that the 93-year-old was admitted overnight for treatment of a pulmonary infection believed to be bronchitis.

“Upon admission, he was alert and in good spirits,” Mission Hospital said in a statement.

Graham is in stable condition and resting comfortably. Spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist was having breakfast Monday morning and doing well. Graham watched his grandson, Will Graham, preach Sunday morning on a television feed and he watched the closing ceremony of the London Olympics Sunday night. Nurses said he had a restful night.

Graham was hospitalized last November for pneumonia. The evangelist's staff says his health has been good since his release, though he has continued to remain at his home in Montreat, N.C., due to “age-related conditions.”

The hospital said Graham “remains actively involved in ministry and writing projects,” including a new book that summarizes the gospel message over the past 70 years of his ministry.

It is not clear how soon Graham will be released from the hospital.

Evangelist Billy Graham Returns Home Following Brief Hospital Stay

By Dan Wooding
Founder of ASSIST Ministries

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (ANS) -- Evangelist Billy Graham returned to his home in Montreat, Tuesday following a two-day stay at Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C . Mr. Graham was admitted to the hospital early Sunday morning and was treated for bronchitis.

“Mr. Graham had a quick recovery and responded very well to his treatment,” said Daniel Fertel, MD, Mission Hospital pulmonologist. “Catching these types of pulmonary infections early is crucial for a fast recovery, as was the case for Mr. Graham. Despite this illness he remains remarkably healthy for a 93-year-old man.”

According to a news release, Mr. Graham kept his routine and enjoyed visits from family members while also interacting with medical staff that put him in good spirits throughout his stay.

“I am grateful for the exceptional care I received at Mission Hospital,” said Mr. Graham. “It is never easy going to the hospital, but the doctors and nurses here provided me with wonderful care. Mission Hospital employs a dedicated team of professionals that administered prompt treatment to restore my health and allow me to return home quickly.”

“I am also grateful for the prayers and letters I received from people across the country and around the world during my short stay,” Mr. Graham continued. “Such an outpouring of love and support is always a blessing but was especially appreciated during my hospitalization.”

Mr. Graham’s staff reports that he will continue with his usual care and physical therapy at home. He will resume his involvement in ministry and writing projects and is currently writing a book about his past seven decades of public ministry.
