After announcing over the weekend that former first lady Barbara Bush was in “failing health” and would no longer seek additional medical treatment for an undisclosed illness, Bush died on Tuesday. Recent statements from the family on the wife of former President George H.W. Bush and mother of President George W. Bush have not said what specifically was ailing Bush, but spokesman Jim McGrath on Monday said Bush has suffered from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. “She also has been treated for decades for Graves’ disease, which is a thyroid condition, had heart surgery in 2009 for a severe narrowing of her main heart valve and was hospitalized a year before that for surgery on a perforated ulcer,” according to CBS News.
