Barbara Bush, 92, to focus on 'comfort care'

A family spokesman on Sunday said the 92-year-old wife of former President George H.W. Bush would be seeking "comfort care" and is among family.

Barbara Bush, one of the most popular members of her famous family, has made a decision to stop seeking medical treatment to prolong her life, a spokesman said on Sunday. "It will not surprise 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", McGrath said in the initial statement.

"They are surrounded by family, but I think the fact that they're together in this and he still says, 'I love you Barbie, ' every night is pretty remarkable", she said. She established the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy decades ago, promoting reading skills across America, particularly for young children.

Her husband, 94, also has had health issues in recent years.

"Barbara and I talked to her last night, she's in great spirits and she's a fighter, she's an enforcer". She has been on oxygen for some time, spokesman Jim McGrath said.

She was hospitalized for bronchitis treatment in January 2017. Bush told an interviewer, "I sat next to her once, thought she was attractive, and I think she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there".

President Trump reportedly backpedals on new Russian sanctions, reversing Nikki Haley's announcement
Putin, in a phone call Sunday with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, described the USA strike as a violation of worldwide law. The U.S., he said, didn't want to oust Assad because he was a dictator - most U.S. allies in the region are led by dictators.

He was treated months earlier, also for pneumonia.
