ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The Rev. Billy Graham will spend at least another night in a North Carolina hospital as he recovers from pneumonia.

Merrell Gregory with Mission Hospital in Asheville said Saturday the 92-year-old evangelist remains in fair condition.

Gregory says doctors think Graham is responding well to antibiotics, but he remains weak.

Gregory said Saturday the overnight nurse who cared for Graham called him sharp as a tack and says they talked about her late grandfather, who once worked for the preacher.

Graham entered the hospital on Wednesday after suffering from sweating, coughing and breathing difficulty. Gregory says doctors have not determined when Graham might be able to return to his home in the North Carolina mountains.
