Granddaughter: Former US First Lady Barbara Bush In Good Spirits Despite Failing Health

The granddaughter of former U.S. First Lady Barbara Bush says Bush is in "great spirits'' and is grateful for "everybody's prayers," a day after the family said Bush is in failing health.

A spokesman for the family, Jim McGrath, gave more details on Monday about the former first lady's health history but did not elaborate on her current health issues. He said she has suffered in recent years from congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
