ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Rev. Billy Graham's recovery from pneumonia is looking better after a restful night in a North Carolina hospital.

Officials at Mission Hospital in Asheville say Monday that Graham had a restful night after a busy Sunday visiting with family and friends.

Graham was admitted Wednesday night after suffering from congestion, a cough and slight fever that was later diagnosed as pneumonia.

The 93-year-old evangelist was visited over the weekend by his son, Franklin Graham, and daughters, Gigi Graham and Anne Graham Lotz and her two daughters.

Officials at Mission Hospital in Asheville say Graham also is progressing in his program of physical therapy and is walking more in the private corridor outside his room.
