ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Officials say the Rev. Billy Graham had a good night at the North Carolina hospital where he is being treated for pneumonia.

Merrell Gregory, a spokeswoman for Mission Hospital in Asheville, said in a press release Sunday morning that nurses reported Graham "had a good night." The brief statement did not include other details about Graham's condition but said hospital officials expected to send another update in the afternoon on his progress.

Officials had said previously that the 93-year-old evangelist will continue physical therapy to help his strength and mobility. Graham was admitted Wednesday night after suffering from congestion, a cough and slight fever that was later diagnosed as pneumonia.

No date has been set for his discharge from the hospital.
