Former first lady Barbara Bush has been hospitalized on Monday for treatment on a “respiratory-related issue,” former President George H.W. Bush’s office said in a statement released late Tuesday night. Barbara Bush, 88, was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston’s Texas Medical Center and in “great spirits,” the statement said.

As the nation’s first lady from 1989 through 1993, Bush was feisty, outspoken and a tireless advocate for literacy during her White House years. Following her husband’s loss in the 1992 presidential election, the couple moved to Houston and also spent time at the longtime family home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

She later supported her son George W. Bush as he campaigned for and eventually won the presidency in 2000. Although Bush continues to make public appearances, she memorably told NBC News in April that America has had “enough Bushes” in the White House when asked about a prospective run from her son, Jeb. Barbara has been plagued by health problems in recent years having undergone surgery for a perforated ulcer in 2008 and in 2009 she had heart surgery.

Most recently, in March 2010, she was hospitalized for tests after complaining of not feeling well.

We ask for prayers for a speedy recovery and comfort for Mrs. Bush.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
