After a series of recent hospitalizations, the 92-year-old former first lady has reportedly made a decision to decline additional medical treatment and will instead "focus on comfort care".

After several recent hospitalizations, Bush has chose to focus on care to keep her comfortable instead of additional treatment, the statement said.

"It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of failing health, worrying not for herself ― thanks to her abiding faith ― but for others". Bush stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as president.

Bush was briefly hospitalized a year ago for bronchitis. They spend their summers at a seaside home in Kennebunkport and are involved in the community. It was a way of combining two of her passions - kids and literacy. "Barbara Bush has a character that is as big, inspiring and iconic as Texas", Abbott said in a statement.

As first lady, she pushed family literacy, and established a foundation for the cause.

Most recently, she was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Good Friday suffering from shortness of breath.

She married George H W Bush in 1945. Bush and President Bush live their lives always putting others first. "Same for Barbara. So I guess we're stuck in Texas", the former president wrote in a letter to Mr. Trump at the time.

Bush is known for her white hair and her triple-strand fake pearl necklace.


In 2011, the town of Kennebunkport dedicated a garden in her honor. In many ways, she is America's grandmother - the rare figure who transcended politics and all the infighting.

"I've had nice medical care and extra operations than you'll consider. I can't believe it".

All along, Barbara Bush has been regarded as an invaluable asset with a grandmotherly persona that could belie a forthright outspokenness. "Everybody liked her because she was kind of the salt of the earth, as I remember".

Her 93-year-old husband, the nation's 41st president who served from 1989 to 1993, also has had health issues in recent years. They've 5 kids, together with former President George W. Bush.

For several decades, Mrs Bush has been treated for Graves' disease, a thyroid condition. "He's one of the best - considerate and loving", she mentioned.

The immediacy of the Internet allows people to become a community very quickly.

Barbara Bush was born Barbara Pierce in 1925 in Rye, New York, the third child of Pauline and Marvin Pierce, a magazine executive.
