McGrath didn't elaborate on Bush's well being issues. She had heart surgery in 2009, and was operated on for an ulcer the year before.

"She is surrounded by a household she adores, and appreciates the numerous type messages and particularly the prayers she is receiving", it continued.

After leaving the White House, Barbara Bush and her husband retired to Houston. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, the nation's second president, and mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth president.
