Former first lady Barbara Bush surrounded by family as health fails

Following years of failing health and multiple recent hospitalizations, sources close to former first lady Barbara Bush say the 92-year-old is declining additional treatment in favor of staying at her Texas home.

According to CNN, husband George H.W. Bush and three of her children are by her side around the clock. Her two most prominent sons, former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, have been visiting frequently in recent days.

A statement on her behalf described her as “a rock in the face of failing health,” adding that her faith allows her to worry “not for herself … but for others.”

Her spokesperson expressed Bush’s gratitude for the “kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”

Barbara Bush has been struggling with health issues including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure for the past few years.
