Ailing former first lady Barbara Bush halting treatment, seeking "comfort care"
Barbara Bush, the wife of one US president and the mother of a second, is in failing health and has made a decision to seek "comfort care" rather than further medical treatment.
In the statement, it was not written how critical her condition is at present.
"It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face off her failing health, worrying not for herself - thanks to her abiding faith - but for others", he said.
A second message read: "I am sending all my love and prayers to the entire Bush family today - Barbara Bush is a woman of great strength, patriotism and an iconic first lady of our times who has touched and inspired countless lives". She has six children, including former President George W. Bush.
Qatari Emir to skip Arab summit in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia's King Salman has criticised Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The two rivals are engaged in proxy wars in Yemen and Syria but also back opposing sides in Lebanon, Iraq and Bahrain.
In January, Mrs. Bush and her husband were hospitalized at the same time.
Barbara Bush is the matriarch of a storied family of politicians, many of whom have Texas ties.
Both husband and wife have dealt with deteriorating health in recent years.
In April 2017, he was released from a hospital in Houston after being treated for two weeks for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis.
She is also grandmother to George P. Bush, the current land commissioner of Texas. Months earlier, he was a Houston's Methodist Hospital for 16 days, also for pneumonia.
Former first lady Barbara Bush is in failing health, a source close to the Bush family tells CNN.
"I have had great medical care and more operations than you would believe", she told the magazine. She married at age 19 while George Bush was a young naval aviator. They got engaged right before he left to fight in World War II as a Navy pilot.
