Barbara Bush, Former First Lady of US, in Failing Health: Family Spokesperson

Bush's office released a statement, confirming after a "recent series of hospitalizations", she has decided against seeking additional medical help and will instead focus on "comfort care".

McGrath said Mrs. Bush spent two days at Methodist Hospital earlier this month but decided not to return there when her health began to deteriorate.

According to CNN, Bush is in failing health and has been suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, and congestive heart failure, for quite some time.

Mrs. Bush is surrounded by her family and appreciates the messages and prayers she has been receiving. HISTORY Barbara Bush is the second woman in USA history to be both a wife and mother of a US president. The Bushes, who have been married for 73 years, also have 4 other children. He is 93 years old and also has been in failing health in recent years. Abigail Adams was the wife of the second president, John Adams, and mother of the sixth president, John Quincy Adams.

As reported, Barbara Bush is the 37th First Lady of the United States when her husband, George H.W. Bush, was President.

Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility. Her son George said that a "crowning achievement" of his father, who was fond of coming up with nicknames for friends and family, was anointing Barbara, "The Silver Fox". Barbara Bush eschewed dying her hair, which ultimately turned white.

The Bushes have been married since 1945.

They traveled to Texas where the oil business dominated, first in Midland-Odessa, later to the Houston area where George found his love for politics.
