Nancy Reagan still recovering from fall

Nancy Reagan is recovering from a number of broken ribs after a fall in March, a representative for the former first lady said Tuesday.

Reagan, 90, was unable to attend a speech given Tuesday evening by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

"Mrs. Reagan has been recovering slowly and has been adding a few appointments back on to her schedule, but was advised by her doctor today not to try and attend large events too far from home just yet," said Joanne Drake, a spokeswoman for Reagan. "She personally invited Congressman Ryan and really wanted to be here, but sent her apologies to him earlier today."

    I hope that Mrs. Reagan recovers quickly.
    She served beautifully as First Lady, and her husband was one of our greatest presidents.

      @ Cindy:
      President Reagan and Mrs. Reagan always wanted every person to have the most that he could possibly attain. The Reagan presidency was a period of aspiration and achievement.
      If you truly believe that the Reagans were opposed to those who work, you do not realize that the highest achievers produce more work than those who achieve little. You might be surprised to spend a full work day accompanying a person of great wealth, even a person who has already attained great wealth and is working to maintain it.
      Many of the most financially successful workers I know are what you call "people of color."
      You might benefit from rethinking your position regarding achievement.
