Evangelist Billy Graham, whose doctor calls him “remarkably healthy” for age 93, checked out of an Asheville, N.C., hospital Tuesday after two days of treatment for bronchitis.

He returned to his home in Montreat, N.C., after checking into Mission Hospital Saturday evening with a fever. According to a press release from his long-time spokesman, A. Larry Ross, Graham’s pulmonologist, Dr. Daniel Fertel, said

“Mr. Graham had a quick recovery and responded very well to his treatment. Catching these types of pulmonary infections early is crucial for a fast recovery, as was the case for Mr. Graham. Despite this illness he remains remarkably healthy for a 93-year-old man.”

Graham was in good spirits and, Ross says, he praised the hospital staff, while admiting, “It is never easy going to the hospital.”

He also thanked all who sent him prayers and letters, saying

Such an outpouring of love and support is always a blessing but was especially appreciated during my hospitalization.

Once back to his mountaintop log cabin, Graham is expected to resume physical therapy and carry on with his ministry and writing projects.
