Ailing Nancy Reagan gets flood of calls, flowers

Nancy Reagan is being deluged with calls and flowers from well-wishers as she recovers in a Los Angeles hospital from a painful broken pelvis.

Reagan spokeswoman Joanne Drake says the 87-year-old former first lady has been taking calls from around the country since it was disclosed that she broke her pelvis in a fall at her Bel-Air home.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Secretary of State James Baker, Diane Sawyer, George Will and Chris Matthews are among callers to Reagan's room at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

There's also a room full of flowers sent by well-wishers including John McCain, Newt Gingrich and Gov. Sarah Palin's office.

Drake says Nancy Reagan had a restful night and hopes to go home by the weekend.
