Barbara Bush, wife of ex-President George H.W. Bush, in 'failing health'


WorldWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Barbara Bush, the wife of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, is in “failing health” and has decided to no longer seek medical treatment, the office of the ex-president said in a statement from Houston on Sunday. The former first lady, who is also the mother of former President George W. Bush, “will instead focus on comfort care,” the statement said. A Bush family spokesman said she was being cared for at her home. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: “The president’s and first lady’s prayers are with all of the Bush family during this time.”With hair that had turned white prematurely, Bush was known by family members as the “Silver Fox.”
