Nancy Reagan in Hospital After Fall

SANTA MONICA, California -- Former U.S. first lady Nancy Reagan was in the hospital early Monday after taking a tumble in her Bel Air home.

Reagan, 86, was doing well after falling Sunday morning, spokeswoman Joanne Drake said. Reagan was taken to St. John's Health Center, where doctors determined that she did not break a hip as initially feared.

Drake said Reagan stayed the night in the same room where former President Ronald Reagan stayed after he broke his hip at home in 2001. He died June 5, 2004, after a 10-year battle with Alzheimer's disease. The two were married for 52 years.

Reagan's family physician recommended the overnight stay "as a precaution," Drake said. He said she was joking in her hospital bed.

Nancy Reagan's last major public appearance was at the Jan. 30 Republican presidential debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, where she sat with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

She did not attend a 97th birthday celebration held for her late husband at the library on Feb. 6.
