ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) -- Evangelist Billy Graham is improving as he recovers from bronchitis at a North Carolina hospital.

Nurses at Mission Hospital in Asheville report that the 93-year-old Graham is resting comfortably and still is in stable condition.

Doctors say they're encouraged by Graham's response to treatment. He had been admitted to the hospital early Sunday.

Spokesman A. Larry Ross says Graham is thankful for the prayers for his recovery. Ross says Graham looks forward to returning to his home in nearby Montreat later this week.

Graham has been working on a new book.
