Jenna Bush tearfully gives a health update on her grandmother, Barbara
Almost no one likes to get old. The human body, once strong and resilient, starts to decay from the inside out, and the effects spread to the outside as well.
Barbara Bush, the former First Lady of the United States, knows that all too well. At the age of 92, her health is no longer what it used to be and she spent most of 2017 in and out of the hospital.
Recently, her health condition has taken a turn for the worse and her granddaughter, Jenna Bush Hager, has given an update on how her grandmother is doing, as reported by Pop Culture.
It was a very emotional moment for Hager, who revealed that, despite the seriousness of Barbara's state, she was still in 'great spirits' while resting at home.
It was announced on April 15, 2018, by the Office of George H. W. Bush, that Barbara had chosen to refuse any further medical treatment; instead, she opted to focus on comfort care.
According to the source, Hager said that her grandmother is surrounded by family and being treated with the utmost care and love. She also added that Barbara was 'the best grandmother anybody could have ever had.'
In the name of the Former First Lady, Hager took the opportunity to thank all those who sent her their prayers and thoughts, and that the world was a better place because she was in it.
As she nears death at age 92, former first lady Barbara Bush's announcement that she is seeking "comfort care" is shining a light — and stirring debate — on what it means to stop trying to fight terminal illness. https://t.co/5OtH52k3P7 pic.twitter.com/KGcWawQYYg— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) April 16, 2018
As reported by Pop Culture, the 92-year-old and her husband, George H. W. Bush, former President of United States, have been battling several health problems, including COPD, congestive heart failure and ailments of old age.
But despite their advanced age, their love for each other, which has been going strong for 73 years, still manages to amaze everyone.
Hager was especially moved and had her heart melt when she learned that her grandfather still tells his wife that he loves her on a daily basis.
