Barbara Bush, the wife of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, is in "failing health" and has decided to no longer seek medical treatment, the office of the ex-president said in a statement from Houston on Sunday.

The former first lady, the statement said, "will instead focus on comfort care." She is 92 years old.

The short statement did not indicate the nature of Bush's illness but said that she had had a series of recent hospitalizations.

"She is surrounded by a family she adores and appreciates the many kind messages and especially the prayers she is receiving," the statement added.

Bush is the mother of former President George W. Bush, 71, the 43 U.S. president.

Her husband, the 41st U.S. president, is 93 years old.
