Nancy Reagan, former first lady and wife of the late President Ronald Reagan, was hospitalized after a fall in her Bel-Air home. The fall caused her to sustain injuries to her pelvis. The Associate Press reported that the 87 year-old will remain in the hospital for several days as a result of her injuries.
Mrs. Reagan was taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Monday for an examination after the fall. It was reportedly determined that she had sustained a broken pelvis and sacrum from the accident. A spokesperson for Mrs. Reagan stated that she is expected to make a recovery within the next several weeks. No surgery is expected to be required for her recovery. She is stated to be in high spirits while dealing with getting well.
Mrs. Reagan was reported to have had a similar accident, also in her home, in February and hospitalized for a fall. She did not sustain fractures from that occurrence.
The late President Ronald passed away in 2004, after a decade long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
