Asheville, N.C. – Evangelist Billy Graham is back at his North Carolina home recovering from surgery to update a shunt that controls excess fluid to his brain.
Mission Hospitals spokeswoman Merrell Gregory says Graham is recovering well and physicians are pleased with his progress. Graham underwent surgery last Wednesday.
Dr. Ralph Loomis said doctors will continue to calibrate the updated valve at his mountainside home in Montreat.
The 89-year-old Southern Baptist minister has also suffered from prostate cancer and macular degeneration. He was hospitalized last year for nearly two weeks.
