  • Barbara Bush in 'great spirits' after declining treatment

Jenna Bush Hager got serious about her ailing grandmother, former first lady Barbara Bush, on the "Today" show Monday morning.

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

The two become America's first couple when George H.W. Bush was elected the 41st President of the United States serving from 1989-1993.

Barbara Bush is the only woman to have seen both her husband and son sworn in as US President.

Throughout a long life in the public eye, Bush was a fierce advocate for her husband and sons, including former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Bush said he's been re-reading his mom's memoir to her and has new appreciation for the memories she shared.

Contamination can also take place if people don't wash their hands thoroughly after using the toilet or changing a diaper. This recall is not the first big one to involve eggs. "The cooking process reduces your risk to close to zero", he says.


"I have had great medical care and more operations than you would believe", she told the magazine.

Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a news release Sunday that "Mrs". She was an unvarnished purveyor of the truth and motivated us all to be better people. "Barbara and I talked to her last night, she's in great spirits and she's a fighter, she's an enforcer". Along the journey, they had six children.

In turn, Beach turned her patriotism and love for animals into a local nonprofit that matches disabled veterans with service dogs.

What a testimony. Through the good times and the bad (Barbara and George lost a daughter, Pauline, to leukemia at the age of 3), they have kept the spark burning.

Mrs. Bush is known for her white hair and her triple-strand fake pearl necklace. "And she's worked tirelessly on that project", Beach said. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business.

Books have always been like members of the family for the Bushes. The article even claimed that she had "passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones".
