BILLY GRAHAM HOSPITALIZED FOR BRONCHITIS
A spokesman for Billy Graham says that the 93-year-old is doing well Monday after being hospitalized over the weekend for a lung infection.
The Associated Press reports that Graham was admitted to the Mission Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina on Saturday
night. He's being treated for bronchitis. Graham is expected to continue to receive treatment at the hospital for at least another few days.
Graham was admitted to Mission hospital in May of 2011 for pneumonia, and then again in November. He's remained at his North Carolina home since then and hasn't made public appearances.
In 2007, Graham was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Despite numerous age-related health problems, his spokesman, A. Larry Ross says the evangelist remains “very alert and very lucid,” according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.
