Former First Lady Barbara Rush 'in good spirits' despite failing health

"She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving", said the brief statement from the office of former president George H.W. Bush.

The office of former President George H.W. Bush released a statement, confirming after a "recent series of hospitalizations", she has decided against seeking additional medical help.

McGrath said she has been treated for decades for Graves' disease, which is a thyroid condition.

Barbara has also been a fierce protector and advocate for her family, most recently, helping her son, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, with his presidential campaign in 2016. She had heart surgery in 2009, and was operated on for an ulcer the year before. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president.

She also said that she and her twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush spoke to their grandmother on Sunday night, sharing, "She is in great spirits and she's a fighter". The couple had six children.

"Barbara and I talked to her last night", she said.

"I am still old and still in love with the man I married 72 years ago", she said in her update.

Bush and her husband celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary on January 6. Bush would travel the world representing the US before turning their sights to The White House, first as the Vice President and Second Lady during the Ronald Reagan administration, then the 1988 Presidential election. He suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a wheelchair.

Their son, George W Bush, was elected president in 2000 and served two terms as the nation's 43rd president.
