Billy Graham released from North Carolina hospital
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Evangelist Billy Graham is out of a North Carolina hospital following a two-day stay for treatment of bronchitis.
Pulmonologist Daniel Fertel said in a statement Tuesday that the 93-year-old had a quick recovery and responded well to his treatment at Mission Hospital in Asheville.
The doctor said that despite the illness, Graham is remarkably healthy for a man his age.
Graham, who has been working on a new book, returned to his home in nearby Montreat.
His staff said he would continue his usual care and physical therapy at home and resume his involvement in ministry and writing projects.
