Bush, 92, will “instead focus on comfort care” for unspecified health complications, according to a statement.
Bush is the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States who is now 93, and mother of 43rd President George W. Bush. She is only the second first lady in American history whose son also ascended to the nation’s highest office, the other being Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.
“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,” a statement from the office of George H.W. Bush said Sunday. “She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”

News that Barbara Bush is nearing the end at age 92 is a reminder of one of the best pictures from the whole crazy 2016 election: Mrs. Bush campaigning for her son in the snows of New Hampshire. pic.twitter.com/5UhC6TsX7l

I didn’t agree with everything that Barbara Bush & George Bush did in the WH, but I respected them completely because they believed in doing what they thought was best for America.
Trump, on the other hand, is the first President that does what is best for himself.
