ASHEVILLE, N.C. — A spokesman for Billy Graham said the 93-year-old evangelist is being treated at a North Carolina hospital for bronchitis.
A joint statement Sunday from Graham’s spokesman and Mission Hospital said Graham was admitted overnight for an infection in his lungs. The hospital is in Asheville, near his home in Montreat.
He is resting comfortably in stable condition.
Graham spokesman Larry Ross said the evangelist watched a television feed of his grandson, Will Graham, preaching Sunday morning in Spartanburg, S.C. He ate lunch with his daughter, Gigi, and one of his grandchildren.
Graham was hospitalized for pneumonia last November. His staff said the evangelist’s health has been good since his release, though he remains at home due to age-related conditions.
He is working on a manuscript for an upcoming book.
