ASHEVILLE, N.C — Evangelist Billy Graham slept well at a North Carolina hospital where continues battling pneumonia.

Mission Hospital spokeswoman Merrell Gregory said Saturday morning that the 93-year-old Christian leader had a "restful night."

Doctors at the hospital in Asheville said Graham was able to stand and walk Friday during a physical therapy session.

Dr. Mark Hellreich, a pulmonologist treating Graham, said he's making good clinical progress and looks better since treatment with antibiotics began.

Graham has suffered from several ailments in recent years. He was admitted to the hospital Wednesday night after suffering from congestion, a cough and a slight fever that was later diagnosed as pneumonia.

Graham was able to take meals on Friday sitting in a chair while talking with hospital staff. No discharge date has been set. .
