Barbara Bush In Failing Health

Former first lady Barbara Bush 92 is seriously ill and she is no longer seeking medical treatment

McGrath said Mrs. Bush spent two days at Methodist Hospital earlier this month but decided not to return there when her health began to deteriorate.

Former first lady Barbara Bush attends day two of the Republican National Convention (RNC) at the Xcel Energy Center on September 2, 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

"Bush will now focus on comfort care" following a series of recent hospitalizations, according to a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush on Sunday.

"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", the statement reads. "Focusing on the family is the best place to start to make this country more literate, and I still feel that being more literate will help us solve so numerous other problems facing our society", she wrote in her 1994 memoir. She has six children, including former President George W. Bush. She was being treated by bronchitis and the nation's 41st president was being treated for pneumonia.

It wasn't immediately clear what Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, had been hospitalized for. She was also diagnosed with Graves' disease in the 1980s.

She has dedicated her life post-White House life to the cause of literacy, and she and her husband have raised more than a billion dollars for charity since they left office.

Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility.

Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, New York.

"I have had great medical care and more operations than you would believe", she told the magazine.

The Bushes have been married for 73 years. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business.
