Evangelist Billy Graham was listed in stable condition at an Asheville hospital Monday after being admitted Sunday morning.

Doctors said the 93-year-old preacher was steadily improving during his treatment for bronchitis, according to a release from Mission Hospitals in Asheville.

Officials said that at his time of admission, Graham was alert and in good spirits. They said he enjoyed watching his grandson Will Graham on television preaching Sunday morning, visited with family then watched the closing ceremony of the Olympics.

"Mr. Graham continues to do well and the infection is responding well to treatment," said Mission Hospital pulmonologist Dr. David Pucci.

Billy Graham was previously hospitalized for successful treatment of pneumonia in November 2011.

Billy Graham's staff said he remains actively involved in ministry and is almost finished with a new book that summarizes his gospel message from the past seven decades of public ministry.

Doctors have not yet said when Billy Graham will be released from the hospital.
