Jenna Bush Hager Tearfully Calls Grandmother Barbara Bush a 'Fighter'

Barbara Bush won't seek more medical treatment after hospitalizations

She was the third child of Pauline and Marvin Pierce, a magazine executive from Rye, New York.

Jim McGrath did not elaborate as to the nature of the 92-year-old Bush's health problems.

Within eight months, they'd met each other's families, were engaged in August 1943 and married January 6, 1945, four months after Bush was shot down over the Pacific.

McGrath says Bush "has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care".

President Donald Trump's and his wife has also conveyed their wishes to Barbara Bush for her good health. Their marriage is the longest of any first couple in United States history.

Brower: She strongly believed that it was someone else's turn.

"When I was a kid, she would read to me and my siblings", Bush said. Hager is the daughter of former President George W. Bush. Here she was, with one son celebrating a second presidential victory down the hall as she was comforting her other son, who was obviously dejected about something.


McGrath said Bush was concerned more for her family than herself.

"We are grateful for her", Hager said of her grandmother.

She continued: "Also, George Bush has given me the world". He has been forced to use a wheelchair, but it hasn't kept him from the side of his "beautiful" bride.

"Sure enough, (Barbara Bush) was standing right outside the gate and she waved us in and made us come in and we got to go in and we put the pizza on the kitchen counter and she had us sit down with President Bush and her and visit for a while", Rita Hajjar said. The two have been holding hands while he has been by her bedside. She has six children, including former President George W Bush. She was a hugely popular first lady who was dispatched to New Hampshire to file the papers for Bush when he ran for re-election and she spent more time campaigning in New Hampshire than her husband did. She says Bush is in "great spirits". A person with lessons on life, faith and service any American, any citizen of this world, can learn volumes from.

Barbara Bush has recalled a bout of depression in the mid-1970s.

"To think that she is not going to be here is a really sad thought, but knowing the mark that she has left in such a positive direction and how she has impacted so many people's lives so just so astounding", Tina Hewett-Gordon said.
