Bar­bara Bush in fail­ing health

The Columbus Dispatch - - Front Page -

For­mer first lady Bar­bara Bush, shown with hus­band Ge­orge H.W. Bush in 2008, is in fail­ing health and will not seek fur­ther med­i­cal care at age 92, the for­mer pres­i­dent’s of­fice said. A per­son close to the fam­ily told The Wash­ing­ton Post that Bar­bara Bush has been suf­fer­ing from a lung dis­ease called chronic ob­struc­tive pul­monary dis­ease and from con­ges­tive heart fail­ure. Af­ter sev­eral re­cent hos­pi­tal­iza­tions, she has de­cided to fo­cus on care to keep her com­fort­able, the of­fice said. “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,” the of­fice said.
