Barbara Bush, wife of former President H.W. Bush, will not seek additional medical treatment and instead will focus on "comfort care", a Bush family spokesman said Sunday. She is only the second first lady in American history whose her son also ascend to the nation's highest office, the other being Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams.

Mrs. Bush, 92, has been hospitalized several times in Houston, Texas, over the past year to be treated for chronic pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure, her family has said. "She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving", the statement read.

Bush, 92, is battling Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and congestive heart failure and has been hospitalized several times over the previous year.

In retirement, former President George H.W. and Barbara Bush made Houston their home, often to the adulation of their fans whether it was sneaking a smooch on the Houston Texans kiss cam at NRG Stadium to tossing out the first pitch for the Houston Astros after President Bush broke his neck in 2015. He is 93 years old and also has been in failing health in recent years.

Bush also revealed her secret for a long life: medical attention.

The couple met at a Christmas dance in 1941, when Barbara Pierce was 16 and George Bush was 17.

Eight years after she and her husband left the White House, she stood with her husband as their son George W. was sworn in as president. Her father was the publisher of McCall's and Redbook magazines. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business.
