Former First Lady Barbara Bush in Failing Health
In an official statement from the office of President George H.W. Bush, the former first family has revealed that Barbara Bush has decided not to seek additional medical care after a series of hospitalizations for a life threatening illness.
Mrs. Bush is ninety-two and served as First Lady from 1989 – 1993. Former President George H.W. Bush is also in frail health, suffering from a disease similar to Parkinson’s that leaves him confined to a wheelchair. Both were hospitalized shortly before President Trump’s inauguration and unable to attend.
Prayers to the Bush family during this difficult time for their family.
