Nancy Reagan hospitalized

LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 15, 2008

Reagan spokeswoman Joanne Drake says the 87-year-old former first lady fell at her home last week. She decided Monday to get checked out at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where doctors determined she had a fractured pelvis.

Drake says Mrs. Reagan is in good spirits and surgery isn't required. She's in some pain and undergoing physical therapy.

It was not known how long Mrs. Reagan will be hospitalized.

Drake says Mrs. Reagan apparently got up in middle of the night at her Bel-Air home and fell after twisting her leg.
