Graham regaining strength at NC hospital

ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) -- The Rev. Billy Graham's recovery from pneumonia is looking better after a restful night in a North Carolina hospital.

Officials at Mission Hospital in Asheville say Monday that Graham had a restful night after a busy Sunday visiting with family and friends.

Graham was admitted Wednesday night after suffering from congestion, a cough and slight fever that was later diagnosed as pneumonia.

The 93-year-old evangelist was visited over the weekend by his son, Franklin Graham, and daughters, Gigi Graham and Anne Graham Lotz and her two daughters.
