Bush, 92, will instead focus on receiving "comfort care", the statement said.

"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 in a statement. She was being treated by bronchitis and the nation's 41st president was being treated for pneumonia. Her son George said that a "crowning achievement" of his father, who was fond of coming up with nicknames for friends and family, was anointing Barbara, "The Silver Fox".
