Former US First Lady Barbara Bush in Failing Health

Prayers and well wishes flood social media as the Bush family spokesperson announced the former first lady is suffering from failing health.

"Our country is better because of former First Lady Barbara Bush", Haley added.

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

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted that Bush "is a comfort to her friends & family teaching us all how to live full of faith, love & humor".

In the statement, it was not written how critical her condition is at present.

The CBS News story reportedly read, "DO NOT PUBLISH - Former first lady Barbara Bush d*es at age 92 DO NOT PUBLISH", and was likely published by result of an error. They had six children and have been married longer than any presidential couple in American history. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president. As her husband's career began to flourish, Barbara remained family-centric, once saying, "At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal".

Her husband, 94, also has had health issues in recent years.

Barbara Pierce Bush was born in Rye, New York. After World War II, the Bushes moved to Texas where he went into the oil business.

Following reports that she would not return to the hospital, but is resting on oxygen at her Houston home instead, numerous posts from notable figures began flooding Twitter, including Democrats and Republicans as well as prominent media personalities. Kay Bailey Hutchison, now the permanent USA representative to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, described Bush as "one of America's most-loved women". The foundation partners with local programs and has awarded more than $40 million to create or expand more than 1,500 literacy programs nationwide.
