It said that Mrs.

Instead, after consulting with doctors and family members, she will now accept "comfort care" in her Houston home.

Former US first lady Barbara Bush has chose to stop seeking medical treatment and focus instead on "comfort care" as her health fails.

Longtime Republican political consultant Rick Wilson described Bush as "an icon" whose "fierce love for her family transcended politics".

She has been treated for decades for Graves' disease, which is a thyroid condition.

The former First Lady showed remarkable grace while she was in the White House, but what she did afterward has been even more impactful. The other first lady was Abigail Adams.

That's according to a statement released Sunday by former President George H.W. Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath.

The Bushes have been married longer than any presidential couple in American history.

During her time in the White House she played an active role in championing the cause of adult literacy among others. In 2000, her son George W. Bush, then the governor of Texas, was elected president.

Household of the previous first girl say Barbara Bush has determined towards in search of any extra medial assist.

Since its in inception, the foundation has gone on to raise and contribute more than $50 million towards establishing and expanding more than 1500 literacy programs for underprivileged children and families in cities all across America.

She first met her husband-to-be at the age of 16; she was a schoolgirl and he was a student at an elite preparatory school in MA.

She campaigned for her son Jeb during the 2016 election. She later said dyed hair didn't look good on her and credited the color to the public's perception of her as "everybody's grandmother".

"She is more than a matriarch", Card said by telephone Sunday. Bush reacted to the news on social media. He's the nation's 41st leader and has also suffered health issues, spending a period in intensive care for pneumonia previous year.

Maine Governor Paul LePage posted a tweet saying in part, "Barbara Bush is one of a kind, and she has been a wonderful friend and inspiration to so many people in Maine". The Bushes moved to Texas in the mid-1940s. Proceeds from the books benefited grownup and household literacy packages.
