Billy Graham back home after hospital stay
ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Evangelist Billy Graham returned to his Montreat home on Thursday after a two-day stay at an Asheville hospital.
The 95-year-old was taken to Mission Hospital on Tuesday for respiratory problems, according to the spokesman. He has been hospitalized multiple times in the past over similar health concerns.
“Mr. Graham was alert and in good spirits during his stay,” said William R. Hathaway, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Mission Hospital. “We are pleased with the results of Mr. Graham’s evaluation.”
For six decades, Graham led a worldwide crusade-based ministry that packed stadiums with believers and allowed him to counsel every U.S. president since Harry Truman.
Graham’s most recent book, “The Reason for Hope: Salvation,” was released in October. He celebrated his 95th birthday Nov. 7.
