ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP) -- Evangelist Billy Graham was released from the hospital Tuesday, six days after being admitted with pneumonia.

A statement from Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C., said Graham had made "good clinical progress" in his response to antibiotics and had "advanced daily" in showing increased strength and mobility. Graham was admitted Wednesday, Nov. 30. He also spent four nights in the hospital in May with pneumonia.

"We are gratified that he has had a good response to treatment and we're committed to good home care to continue his improvement," Graham's personal physician, Lucian Rice, said in a statement.

Graham also expressed thanks to people for thinking of him and praying for him.

"I am grateful for the many thoughts and prayers expressed by individuals across the country and around the world during my stay at Mission Hospital," Graham was quoted as saying. "I also appreciated the wonderful treatment I received here from such caring doctors and nurses, and feel I have made some new friends. But I am especially looking forward to seeing my home decorated for Christmas and spending the holidays with members of my family."

Graham will continue physical therapy at home, the hospital statement said, with the "goal of returning to normal activities in the coming weeks." Those activities include, the hospital said, "resuming his next writing project, summarizing the message he has proclaimed for more than 60 years, incorporating thoughts and discussions on that topic that occurred during his hospitalization."
