It wasn’t immediately clear what Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, had been hospitalized for.

The Associated Press reports that Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a news release: “Following a recent series of hospitalizations, and after consulting her family and doctors, Mrs. Bush, now age 92, has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.

“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,” McGrath said. “She is surrounded by a family she adores, and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving.”

Mrs. Bush has been treated for decades for Graves’ disease, which is a thyroid condition, the AP reports.
