On New Year’s Eve, the latest report reveals that she is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. The statement informed the media and public that updates about her condition will be issued when they are warranted.
George H.W. Bush was the 41st President of the United States, and he also was the Vice President for two terms – serving in with President Ronald Reagan.
