Evangelist Graham, 92, hospitalized with pneumonia

May 11, 2011 6:54:00 PM - thestate.com
Evangelist Billy Graham was alert and resting comfortably Wednesday evening after being admitted to an Asheville, N.C. hospital for the treatment of pneumonia, doctors said.

The 92-year-old Graham arrived Wednesday morning at Mission Hospital after he suffered a health episode overnight that included sweating, coughing and breathing difficulty, Graham spokesman A. Larry Ross told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "But he was never in distress or an acute situation," Ross said.

"Throughout his stay, he had remained alert and in good spirits and with his humor intact," Ross said. "He signed his own admission papers."

Testing suggested he was suffering from pneumonia, and diagnostic tests showed his heart was normal.

Dr. Shaw Henderson, a pulmonologist, said Graham was being treated with antibiotics and was "clinically stable," according to a statement from the hospital.
