Nancy Reagan Falls At Home

Nancy Reagan is in a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a broken pelvis.

A spokesman says the 87-year-old former first lady fell last week at her home but admitted herself to the hospital only after experiencing "persistent pain." That's when doctors determined she had a fractured pelvis.

Reagan is expected to remain hospitalized for a few days until doctors are satisfied with her progress. Her anticipated recovery time is six to eight weeks, including physical therapy and a modified schedule.

The spokesman says Reagan is in good spirits.
