(AP) – Evangelist Billy Graham is recuperating at home after being treated for bronchitis at a North Carolina hospital. The Rev. Franklin Graham says his father was “very sick” when he was rushed to Asheville’s Mission Hospital before dawn Sunday.

Mission Hospital pulmonologist Daniel Fertel said Tuesday that the 93-year-old Graham responded well to treatment and recovered quickly. Fertel said despite the illness, Billy Graham is remarkably healthy for a man his age.

Franklin Graham says his father believes God will let him live to the age of 95 and is making plans for next year, including a televised evangelistic outreach and publication of his latest book about salvation and his seven decades in ministry.
