Evangelist Billy Graham remains hospitalized Monday in Asheville, being treated for a suspected case of bronchitis.
It is the second hospitalization in less than a year for Graham, 93, a Charlotte native.
He was admitted Saturday night to Mission Hospital, was being treated by pulmonologist Dr. David Pucci, and was resting comfortably Sunday. No change in his condition was reported Monday morning.
A spokesman for Graham said he ate lunch Sunday with his daughter Gigi and a grandchild. According to multiple media reports, Graham then watched the Olympics on Sunday evening. He had breakfast Monday morning and was reported to be in good spirits.
Spokesman Larry Ross said the hospital expects to treat Graham for several days.
Last November, Graham was admitted to Mission with a case of pneumonia.
When Graham developed a fever and cough Saturday night, doctors decided on the more aggressive step of hospitalization to try to keep the infection from worsening. Ross said the evangelist seems farther along in his recovery compared with his last two illnesses.
Last year, Graham released Nearing Home, his thoughts on aging and the approach of death. Hes been healthy through 2012, though he remains homebound in Montreat and makes no public appearances.
The evangelist is finishing up a manuscript for a new book summarizing his message from seven decades of public ministry, Ross said.
Sunday, he was eating and watching the broadcast of the service at his home church, First Baptist Church of Spartanburg. His grandson Will was giving the guest sermon.
