Barbara Bush, the wife of one USA president and the mother of a second, is in failing health and has chose to seek "comfort care" rather than further medical treatment.

ET obtained a statement from the Bush family on Sunday, which was later also posted on Twitter, after she had been hospitalized several times in recent months.

Both Barbara Bush and her husband, who live in Texas, have confronted numerous medical difficulties in recent years. "She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving", the statement read.

"Barbara Bush is a woman of great strength, patriotism and an iconic first lady of our times who has touched and inspired countless lives".

Her husband, George H.W. Bush, was the nation's 41st president, while her son George W. Bush, one of the couple's six children, was the 43rd president.




Bush, 92, is battling Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and congestive heart failure and has been hospitalized several times over the past year.

Jim McGrath issued a statement that the former first lady is in comfort care. Her son George said that a "crowning achievement" of his father, who was fond of coming up with nicknames for friends and family, was anointing Barbara, "The Silver Fox". "I'm not sure God will recognize me; I have so many new body parts!"

All along, Barbara Bush has been regarded as an invaluable asset with a grandmotherly persona that could belie a forthright outspokenness.

"One out of six Americans, literally, can not read above the fifth grade level - that's bad!", said Barbara when she made literacy her focal point while serving as First Lady of the United States. After he returned on leave, she dropped out of Smith College, and the two married in January 1945.
