Former first lady Barbara Bush is a fighter — and she’ll continue to persevere … with her bourbon.
That’s right — ?.
Moving forward, Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said, the former first lady will “focus on comfort care” and time with her family after a spate of hospitalizations.

The 92-year-old icon is suffering from severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which makes breathing very difficult, but she’s still enjoying the finer things in life. And for her, that’s conversation and a glass of bourbon.
A source close to the Bush family tells CBS News’ Jenna Gibson that, while Mrs. Bush’s COPD makes it difficult for her to breathe, she is alert and was having conversations last night. She was also having a bourbon.
