Barbara Bush in ‘Failing Health,’ Declines Medical Care

Former first lady Barbara Bush is in “failing health” and will not seek additional medical treatment, a spokesperson for the Bush family said on Sunday.

“Following a recent series of hospitalizations, and after consulting her family and doctors, Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement released on Twitter.

McGrath did not explain why Bush had been hospitalized, though she has battled with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, commonly known as COPD, and congestive heart failure within the last year and had long been treated for Graves’ disease.

“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,” McGrath said. “She is surrounded by family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”

Bush married her husband and former president George H.W. Bush in 1945. They have been married for 73 years and have six children.

She is the only living wife of one former president and the mother of another former president, something only one other first lady, Abigail Adams, can claim.

    If I was in Mrs. Bush place and was 92 years old, I would have asked for the same thing. What is the point of living in pain…She had such wonderful years with her family. Prayers will be said for Mrs. Bush.

    Mrs. Barbara Bush has brought Class to the WH. She has done a lot to get people to pick up a book. Sorry to hear about her. If I was at that age, I too will tell the Medical People to just let a person to be comfortable.

    See that look of fear in her eyes? That’s the look of Aliester Crowley’s daughter fearing for her soul and the thought of burning for all eternity.
