Billy Graham In Fair Condition

Evangelist Billy Graham remains in fair condition at an Asheville hospital and has not experienced any more episodes of intestinal bleeding.

Hospital spokeswoman Merrill Gregory says the 88-year-old Graham
spent Tuesday visiting with family and friends and taking a regular
walk outside his room. She says Graham has been following the news
of Hurricane Dean and is in prayer for people and property in its
path, and is grateful for the prayers of many well-wishers on his
behalf.

Graham has been at Mission Health & Hospitals since experiencing
an initial bout of intestinal bleeding on Saturday. He had a second
episode Monday.

The hospital has said the bleeding may have been caused by
diverticuli, or small pouches that can form in the lower intestine.
The hospital says a diverticular bleed often begins suddenly and
may stop on its own.
