National, state leaders express support for former First Lady Barbara Bush

Former First Lady Barbara Bush is in "failing health" and has decided not to seek additional medical treatment, a Bush family spokesman said.

Jim McGrath, spokesman for former President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush released the following statement on Sunday:

Following a recent series of hospitalizations, and after consulting her family and doctors, Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care. 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. She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.

A number of national and state leaders and politicians have expressed their support for Barbara Bush and her family.
