Barbara Bush Heart Surgery


Barbara Bush, mother of former President George W. Bush, was recovering on Wednesday from heart surgery in a Houston hospital where her aortic valve was replaced, a spokeswoman said.

The surgery was performed at Methodist Hospital's DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center, according to a statement released by the hospital.

The procedure was scheduled last week after Bush, 83, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, experienced shortness of breath and doctors detected a hardened valve in her heart, the hospital said.

She also underwent surgery in late November for a perforated ulcer and was released from the hospital on December 2.
