Barbara Bush Reveals Heartbreaking News, Is Seriously Ill With Heart Failure And Is Not Seeking Additional Treatment

CNN is reporting that former first lady Barbara Bush is in failing health, choosing to return to her home in Houston rather than seek additional medical care.

A statement released by a family spokesman earlier today reads, “Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.” The news follows a “recent series of hospitalizations” due to the her battle with congestive heart failure and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

It continues, “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.”

CNN’s Ana Navarro tweeted a heartfelt message, writing, “Guys, let’s put partisanship and political gamenship aside, and please pray for Barbara Bush and her Family. She is a special lady who touched so many people’s lives and made our country and our world a little better.”

Mrs. Bush has been married to former president George Herbert Walker Bush for over seven decades.

Twitter is understandably sad about the news:
