Former Colorado Gov. Romer fondly recalls friendship with Barbara Bush

Former first lady Barbara Bush is in failing health and will not seek additional medical care after a series of recent hospitalizations, a spokesman for the Bush family said Sunday.

Throughout a long life in the public eye, Bush was a fierce advocate for her husband and sons, including former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Bush, 92, will "instead focus on comfort care" for unspecified health complications, according to a statement.

Mr McGrath says Mrs Bush is surrounded by "a family she adores" and appreciates the many kind messages and prayers she has been receiving.

The statement did not specify what she has been treated for recently, but CNN reported she suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.


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.

Barbara Bush has been married to her husband for 73 years. He is 93 years old and also has been in failing health in recent years.

The nation's 41s president also was hospitalized in 2015 in ME, where he and his wife spend summers at their home in Kennebunkport, after falling at home and breaking a bone in his neck.

Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, New York. 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".
