Billy Graham Makes Progress in Pneumonia Battle

Billy Graham (BGEA)

Good news coming from Mission Hospital: Billy Graham seems to be recovering.

"Billy Graham has made good clinical progress in combating pneumonia and he looks better,” said his pulmonologist, Dr. Mark Hellreich, M.D. Physical therapists have had Graham up and walking around on Friday. He took his meals sitting in a chair by his bed, while continuing to engage in conversation with hospital staff. 



Graham was hospitalized on Wednesday for evaluation and treatment of his lungs.

Graham was previously hospitalized for successful treatment of pneumonia in May. He resumed his ongoing program of physical therapy and normal activity shortly after release, according to his staff. This included finalizing his most recent book, Nearing Home, published in October, and beginning work on a new project reaffirming the evangelistic message he has preached for more than 60 years.

While no date has been set for discharge, Graham is looking forward to returning home to spend the upcoming Christmas holiday with his family.
