Barbara Bush, 92, to focus on 'comfort care'

Former First Lady Barbara Rush 'in good spirits' despite failing health

In retirement, former President George H.W. and Barbara Bush made Houston their home, often to the adulation of their fans whether it was sneaking a smooch on the Houston Texans kiss cam at NRG Stadium to tossing out the first pitch for the Houston Astros after President Bush broke his neck in 2015.

Former U.S. First Lady Barbara Bush is in "failing health" and won't seek further medical treatment, a family spokesman said Sunday. "She's in great spirits, and she's a fighter". Sons Neil and Marvin and daughter Doro were also by their mother's side at the Bush residence. She had heart surgery in 2009, and was operated on for an ulcer the year before. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.

"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". They had six children and have been married longer than any presidential couple in American history.

"We are grateful for her", Hager said, fighting back tears.

A Home Office official said the rejection was because the subject of the meeting was not clear. This should not happen to people who have been longstanding pillars of our community.

"She reminded me not to believe everything you read", she added.

George H W Bush, the nation's 41st president, has also suffered health issues, and spent a period in intensive care for pneumonia past year. "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 and her husband celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary on January 6. He was hospitalized months earlier, also for pneumonia. He suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a wheelchair.

Before being president, he served as a congressman, Central Intelligence Agency director and Ronald Reagan's vice president.
