Evangelist Billy Graham, 92, is interviewed at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday, Dec. 20, 2010.

Evangelist Billy Graham remains in a North Carolina hospital after being admitted for treatment of pneumonia.

A spokesman for Mission Hospital in Asheville confirmed early Thursday that the 92-year-old Graham was still at the hospital and there's no change in his condition.

Dr. Shaw Henderson, a pulmonologist, said Graham is being treated with antibiotics and was "clinically stable."

A more detailed report on Graham's condition is expected later Thursday.

A spokesman for Graham says he went to the hospital Wednesday morning after he experienced sweating, coughing and breathing difficulty Tuesday night. Larry Ross says Graham was never in distress.

Graham's primary physician, Dr. Lucien Rice, said no date had been set for Graham's release.

His son, Franklin Graham, was in North Korea and had no plans to return home now.
