ORANGE, Calif. (AP) - Crystal Cathedral founder the Rev. Robert Schuller remains hospitalized after a fall at his California home but is recovering.
Schuller's daughter, Carol Schuller Milner, said Thursday the 86-year-old televangelist was upbeat and joking with doctors after a fall early Saturday at his home in Orange.
The family was initially concerned that Schuller, who had a heart attack in 1997, was suffering from heart failure but that was quickly ruled out. She says doctors are trying to determine the cause of a high lactic acid count.
Schuller, the once-popular televangelist whose Crystal Cathedral was dedicated in 1980, resigned from the church's board in 2012, two years after the church filed for bankruptcy.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange bought the soaring, glass-paned cathedral in bankruptcy proceedings.
