Barbara Bush in ‘failing health

Former First Lady Barbara Bush is in “failing health” and has decided to not to seek additional medical treatment following a series of hospitalizations, according to a statement from a family spokesman Sunday afternoon. Bush, 92, will instead “focus on comfort care” at her home in Houston and is “surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving,” spokesman Jim McGrath’s statement said. McGrath told KHOU that Mrs. Bush spent two days at Methodist Hospital earlier this month but decided not to return there when her health began to deteriorate. Husband George H.W. Bush was at her bedside Sunday afternoon and holding her hand, according to McGrath. Sons Neil and Marvin and daughter Doro were also by their mother’s side at the Bush residence. Sons George and Jeb have visited her in the past week. McGrath said both were “calling constantly” for updates. “It will not surprise 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 in the initial statement.
