Former first lady Barbara Bush is recovering from successful open-heart surgery performed yesterday at Methodist Hospital in Houston, the Associated Press reported.
The former first lady is the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, and mother of both former President George W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
After experiencing shortness of breath, doctors determined that the former first ladies' aortic valve had started to harden.
Dr. Gerald Lawrie, who replaced the valve with a biologic valve said the surgery went extremely well and he expects the former first lady to recover fully and return to normal activities.
Barbara Bush conducted herself with great dignity as first lady and is loved and respected by Americans of all political strips. The American Conservative Republican asks that you keep our former first lady in your prays.
