Barbara Bush Will No Longer Seek Medical Treatment After Hospitalizations

Barbara Bush, the wife of one USA president and the mother of a second, is in failing health and has chose to seek "comfort care" rather than further medical treatment.

HOUSTON (AP) - Former first lady Barbara Bush is in "failing health" and won't seek additional medical treatment, a Bush family spokesman said Sunday. "Focusing on the family is the best place to start to make this country more literate, and I still feel that being more literate will help us solve so numerous other problems facing our society", she wrote in her 1994 memoir.

She and Former President George H.W. Bush have been married for 73 years and have both been dealing with health issues.
