Billy Graham Hospitalized With Pneumonia in NC Hospital

Billy Graham Hospitalized
The story is still developing but here is the latest on the word know preacher's health condition
Report is by USA Today:

Longtime spokesman A. Larry Ross said Graham was taken to the hospital with "a cough, congestion and a slight fever. He arrived smiling and waving at hospital staff. After initial tests and X-rays, he was admitted at least for overnight observation and treatment of suspected pneumonia."
"Given his age, this is more of a precaution," Ross said.

Graham, who has dealt with Parkinson's-like symptoms for more than a decade, was treated for pneumonia in May but rebounded to resume his normal activities — prayer, study and writing. His most recent book, Nearing Home, was published in October, and he spent Thanksgiving at his Montreat with family.

In Nearing Home, Graham wrote that everyone, not just the old, will one day face death and should discern why they're still alive and find the spiritual strength to face debilitation and loss. Graham admitted, "I can't truthfully say that I have liked growing older."

Graham's son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, says his father told him, "I think God is going to let me live to be 95." Ross said Wednesday that Graham expects to be home for Christmas to resume work on an evangelism project.
