ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) â€” Evangelist Billy Graham underwent successful surgery Wednesday to update a shunt that controls excess fluid in his brain, and was expected to remain in the hospital for several days.
Graham was listed in fair condition at Asheville's Mission Hospitals after the 28-minute procedure. "He's on a soft diet tonight, will be on a regular diet tomorrow and should be up and walking around," said Larry Ross, Graham's spokesman.
The charismatic Southern Baptist minister has a variety of health concerns that have confined him largely to his mountainside home in the hamlet of Montreat for several years. Among the concerns was hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid within the brain that can cause symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease....

As I previously stated in my comment before your previous post:
"You see, I (AntiVaticanistAmerican) also as a Lost & Hell-Bound Roman "Catholic" went up forward in a Billy Graham endorsed Evangelistic Meeting (at our local Theatre) in 1974. I went there with my Best Friend who was a Lutheran Minister's Son: and a spiritually Lost child of The Devil like I was. After the "altar call" we went forward. He got "saved"; but I was told that I didn't have to change my Satanic Roman "Catholic" Cultic False Religion !"
Therein LIES The Satanic, Diabolical, Hellish, Wicked, UnGodly, UnBiblical & Anti-Christian Message/Principle of Billy Graham's so-called "evangelism":
That One Doesn't Have To Repent & Change His/Her Satanic Roman "Catholic" Cultic False Religion (aka Roman "Catholicism": The World's Oldest, Largest & Riche$t False "Christian" Cult with Over 1 BILLION [1,000,000,000+] SPIRITUALLY LOST Members WORLD WIDE--Not To Mention BILLIONS of ETERNALLY LOST Members HELL-WIDE) !
The Satanic-Vaticanist ERRORS of BILLY GRAHAM have nothing to do so much with YOUR feelings; As With THE Historic Documented FACTS of GRAHAM'S APOSTASY !

John Yurich Sadly I would have to think that in the mind of one who doesn't want to leave the disobedient apostate Roman Catholic Church Billy Graham would seem like the best Baptist Preacher around, not sell out the Gospel of Christ to have the Pope as his friend?
John Here is the rub, 'How can they call upon Him in whom they have NOT BELIEVED? And how can they believe in Him in whom they have NOT HEARD?'
John, believing in a "distorted Jesus" who "forgives" unrepentant sinners who continue right on in their life of sin doesn't save anyone.
The real Jesus saves people FROM THEIR SINS not approves them in them. Or would you think somehow you know more than the One who preached:
Matt 7 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (practise lawlessness).
I believe that Billy Graham Has brought the Gospel to more people than any other person on this planet. I am confused, however, when it seems to appear that so many many are in the Kingdom, regardless of their faith , solid doctrine., On the one hand , Billy Grham has, I believe, brought the gospel to many people, on the other hand, I feel he has some strong errors which need correcting, hopefully before he dies.Any other opinions?
Nay, "john yurich", but what is it with you anyway ! ? ! Why are you defending Graham's Compromise with The Great Religious/Political-"Church"/State Whore of Revelations 13, 17 & 18 ?
Authorized Biblically & Historically speaking; Billy Graham is the Worst so-called "'Baptist' minister" around (if he is indeed Really a True Biblical/Historic Baptist minister).
Billy Graham is a Satanic-Vaticanist agent/pawn/dupe/drone/patsy/collaborator who "talks The Talk": but doesn't "walk The Walk" (As in A Phoney, A Charlatan, A Quack, A Benedict-Arnold, A Judas, A Hypocrite) !
Billy Graham is A 33rd Degreed Mason (who takes Oaths Contrary To The Commands of The Authorized Holy Bible) !
And Just As The Devil Himself Can Read The Holy Bible & Preach From It......Yea, Even Evangelize Humans and "Win their Souls for Christ": So Has Billy Graham Done The Same !
You see, I also as a Lost & Hell-Bound Roman "Catholic" went up forward in a Billy Graham endorsed Evangelistic Meeting (at our local Theatre) in 1974. I went there with my Best Friend who was a Lutheran Minister's Son: and a spiritually Lost child of The Devil like I was. After the "altar call" we went forward. He got "saved"; but I was told that I didn't have to change my Satanic Roman "Catholic" Cultic False Religion !
What is with you anyway? Why are you criticising Graham? Graham is the best Baptist minister around. Graham preaches that the only way to get saved is by becoming Born Again by praying to Christ and asking Him to come into ones heart and cleanse one of all sins and become ones Savior. Over 25 years ago I learned by watching Graham Crusades on television that the only way to get saved is by praying to Christ and asking Him to come into ones heart and cleanse one of all sins and become ones Savior. It was not until 15 or 16 years later that I decided it was time that I pay attention to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to receive Christ as my Savior in November 1997 during an Altar Call at my brother's Non Denominational Church.
FYI, effective brain surgery is, in some forms, quite ancient (cf Gen. 4:21-22): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trepanation http://neurophilosophy.wordpress.com/2007/06/12/an-illustrated-history-of-trepanation
