Evangelist Billy Graham hospitalized again in US
ASHEVILLE, North Carolina (AP) — Evangelist Rev. Billy Graham has been admitted to a hospital for the second time in a month for respiratory issues.
Mark DeMoss of the Atlanta-based DeMoss Group said Wednesday the 95-year-old Graham had been admitted for observation at Mission Hospital in North Carolina. DeMoss says he expected Graham would be able to go home in a day or so.
In October, Graham went in for a regularly scheduled doctor’s visit but spent two nights in the hospital for pulmonary testing. He has been hospitalized for a number of health-related issues in the past few years and now uses a wheelchair.
Graham celebrated his birthday Nov. 7 with 900 guests, including real estate mogul Donald Trump and former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
