ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Doctors say evangelist Billy Graham continues to improve while hospitalized with pneumonia in western North Carolina.

A spokesman for Mission Hospital in Asheville says the 92-year-old was able to resume a normal routine Thursday, a day after being admitted for treatment.

Graham got up for all his meals, and completed a physical therapy program. He was also visited by his pastor for Bible study and prayer.

Dr. Shaw Henderson, a pulmonologist, says Graham's temperature is normal and his congestion is clearing up.

No discharge date has been set for Graham, a confidant to presidents and one of the most famous Christian leaders of the last century.

His son, Franklin Graham, is in North Korea and has no plans to cut his trip short and return home.
