Bush, 92, made the decision to forgo medical treatments and "focus on comfort care" after consulting her family and doctors amid a series of recent hospitalizations, according to a statement shared by spokesman Jim McGrath. "She was 92. A Bush family spokesman said Bush passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones".
United States television channel CBS have wrongly published an obituary for former First Lady Barbara Bush, as reported. She has also been undergoing a long-term treatment for Grave's disease, a life-threatening thyroid condition. Former President George W. Bush and former Florida governor Jeb Bush have both been to visit in recent days as well. Some of the things we have done are modeled off her leadership. In April 2017, he was hospitalized in Houston for two weeks for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis. She is only the second first lady in American history whose son also ascended to the nation's highest office, the other being Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.
Husband George H.W. Bush is at her bedside and holding her hand, McGrath said.
The family of Jacob Thompson, the nine-year-old Saco boy who received well-wishes and Christmas cards from hundreds of thousands of people around the world, is thanking former first lady, Barbara Bush, and wishing her well as she faces her latest health battle. Her husband is by her side, as are her children, Neil, Marvin and Dorothy. Bush and President Bush live their lives always putting others first. She established the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy decades ago, promoting reading skills across America, particularly for young children. Bush donated the proceeds of the books to her charity, which is aimed to improve the lives of American families through literacy.
