U.S. evangelist Billy Graham has left hospital in North Carolina after treatment for bronchitis.
The 93 year old was admitted to Mission Hospital on Saturday (11Aug12) with a fever, but he returned home on Tuesday (14Aug12) following "a quick recovery", according to his spokesman.
Graham has released a statement thanking the doctors and nurses who treated him, and has a special message for his friends and fans.
He says, "Such an outpouring of love and support is always a blessing but was especially appreciated during my hospitalisation."
Graham was also hospitalised just before Christmas (Dec11).
