Evangelist Billy Graham returned to his home in Montreat, N.C., Tuesday following a two-day stay at Mission Hospital, the flagship hospital of Mission Health in Asheville. He was admitted on Tuesday for pulmonary-related tests and observation.

“Mr. Graham was alert and in good spirits during his stay,” says Dr. William R. Hathaway, chief medical officer at Mission Hospital. “We are pleased with the results of Mr. Graham’s evaluation.”

Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday on Nov. 7, was admitted at Mission Hospital last month for similar tests.

Throughout the past year, the evangelist has remained in generally good health. During this time, Graham wrote his 32nd book, The Reason for My Hope: Salvation, and filmed a new message, My Hope America, which aired this month on some 500 stations across the nation.
