Former first lady Barbara Bush has been very unwell for some time, and on Monday, her family announced that she will not seek further treatment for her failing health. Doctors "will instead focus on comfort care" for 92-year-old Mrs. Bush, according to a statement issued by her husband, former President George H.W. Bush's office in Houston.
"It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself—thanks to her abiding faith—but for others," the statement said, as reported by The New York Times. "She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving."
Barbara's two eldest sons, Former President George W. Bush and the former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, have both been to visit in recent days and were calling frequently on Sunday, according to source close to the family. Mrs. Bush has been a long-term sufferer of congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
