Former first lady Barbara Bush, after a "recent series of hospitalizations," has declined any further medical treatment, a family spokesman announced Sunday. "It 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," Jim McGrath tweeted. Barbara Bush, 92, and former President George H.W. Bush, 93, were married in January 1945. Her husband has a Parkinson's-like disease, and on Good Friday, she was hospitalized after suffering from shortness of breath.
