ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Billy Graham was taken to a hospital in Asheville for respiratory problems on Tuesday.

The 95-year-old was taken to Mission Hospital on Tuesday for respiratory problems, but is expected to return home in a few days, according to a family spokesperson.

Mr. Graham is in the hospital with a respiratory congestion issue, similar to what he had a few weeks ago, Mark DeMoss, spokesperson for the Graham family said. As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two.

Graham celebrated his 95th birthday earlier this month with a party at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville.
