Billy Graham

ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Hospital officials say the Rev. Billy Graham is continuing his "successful" treatment for pneumonia.

A statement from Asheville's Mission Hospital on Saturday afternoon said Graham's pulmonologist reports he is maintaining the improvement he showed Friday.

The 93-year-old evangelist will continue physical therapy to help his strength and mobility. Doctors said Graham stood and walked Friday during a physical therapy session. No date is set for his discharge.

Hospital spokesman Merrell Gregory said Graham has shown his long-term memory is still strong with old stories about his life and ministry.
