Billy Graham admitted to hospital with respiratory congestion

ASHEVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

The Rev. Billy Graham was admitted to an Asheville hospital on Tuesday after he was complaining of respiratory problems.

Graham, who turned 95 earlier this month, is expected to be released on Thursday.

"Mr. Graham is in the hospital with a respiratory congestion issue, similar to what he had a few weeks ago.  As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two," said a spokesman for Graham.

He was admitted to a hospital in late October with similar complaints.

Graham, who has not preached publicly in seven years because of his health, reached out to the nation with a recorded message that aired on his birthday.
