Billy Graham, 92, Hospitalized for Pneumonia

George Walker/Liaison(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) -- Evangelist Billy Graham was admitted to a North Carolina hospital Wednesday, after having what doctors only say was a health episode at this North Carolina home.  

He was brought to the hospital for what tests showed to be pneumonia and is now receiving the appropriate antibiotics, according to sources close to the matter.  

His doctors say Graham's heart is normal, he's resting comfortably and is fully alert, though there is no set time for his release.

His spokesman says Graham is generally in good health, but he is 92 and conditions related to his advanced age have kept him home bound in recent years.
