MONDAY – 4/16/18

Former First Lady to George H.W. Bush and mother of George W. Bush and Jeb Bush, Barbara Bush is in failing health, and announced she won’t be seeking any further treatment. She said that she doesn’t want to go back into the hospital and would rather stay at home.

For the past few days, Mrs. Bush has been put on oxygen, and has decided to stay at home and receive comfort care rather than professional medical treatment. The family source also said that she came to the decision after consulting with family and friends for a while.

Mrs. Bush is 92 years old, and is now being visited by husband and sons in the family. She has been in and out of the hospital several times in the past year, and has been suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a type of heart failure.
