Jim McGrath did not elaborate as to the nature of the 92-year-old Bush's health problems.

In true Barbara Bush fashion, when she learned about the press release, Neil said, she began answering phone calls from anxious friends to reassure them. The former first lady is said to be in "great spirits", despite her declining health, and nothing has changed beyond that update.

Barbara Bush is the only woman to have seen both her husband and son sworn in as United States president.

"I commented under my breath, why do you think they left home to begin with, and she wouldn't let me forget about that for about three or four weeks".

"We're grateful for her, for everybody's prayers and thoughts, and just know the world is better because she's in it".

Sons George and Jeb have also visited in the past week.

George H W Bush, the nation's 41st president, has also suffered health issues and spent a period in intensive care for pneumonia previous year. Abigail Adams was the wife of the second president, John Adams, and mother of the sixth president, John Quincy Adams. He has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility. But he has been well enough to make recent public appearances, including RodeoHouston.

The blunder occurred on Sunday following reports that the health of Mrs Bush, wife of former US President George H W Bush, is failing.

The former first lady has been met with an outpouring of support from both sides of the aisle.

She added, "She's with my grandpa, the man she's loved for over 73 years".

Bush also revealed her secret for a long life: good doctors and a great husband. "I'm not sure God will recognize me; I have so many new body parts!" She and George H.W. Bush married when she was 19 and while he was a young naval aviator.

Barbara Pierce Bush was born June 8, 1925, in Rye, New York.

Bush said he's been re-reading his mom's memoir to her and has new appreciation for the memories she shared. The couple went on to have six children, including a daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia when she was 3.
