Billy Graham Having Tests at Mayo Clinic

United Press International

Evangelist Billy Graham is undergoing tests this week at the Mayo Clinic, including a hernia examination and an angiogram, a spokesman said Wednesday.

Graham, 66, was admitted Tuesday night for the angiogram, which involves threading a catheter into the heart and injecting dye so doctors can check the heart vessels.

Doctors decided Graham needs surgery for the hernia, the spokesman said. It will be done early next year.
