After night in hospital, evangelist Billy Graham awaits diagnosis from tests for cough, fever
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) ' The Rev. Billy Graham is in a North Carolina hospital, awaiting word from doctors on whether he has pneumonia.
Graham was admitted to Mission Hospitals in Asheville late Wednesday morning suffering from congestion, a cough and a slight fever.
Spokesman A. Larry Ross says Graham was in good spirits Wednesday night after a full afternoon of medical tests. Ross said Graham's daughter, Gigi, visited her father. While watching television in the hospital room, they found a channel showing Graham's 1973 crusade in St. Louis.
Dr. Lucian Rice, who is Graham's personal physician, said he was in stable condition.
