Barbara Bush Will Not Seek Additional Medical Help

WASHINGTON – Former first lady Barbara Bush, who is in failing health, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment beyond “comfort care” at home, a family spokesman 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,” the Bush family – via spokesman Jim McGrath – said in a statement.

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

The wife of former President George H.W. Bush and mother of former President George W. Bush has been suffering from a chronic pulmonary obstruction that has affected her cardiac capacity, leading to several hospitalizations over the past few years.

McGrath, in the statement, did not go into what led Mrs. Bush to decide not to receive further treatment.

Born in New York on June 8, 1925, the former Barbara Pierce is one of two women in US history – the other being Abigail Adams in the first few years of the 19th century – to be both the wife and mother of two presidents.
