(Newser) – Nancy Reagan returned home today from a Los Angeles hospital after being treated for a broken pelvis, Reuters reports. For the 87-year-old widow of Ronald Reagan, who fell at her home last week, 2 days with doctors was enough: "I hope it won't hurt anyone's feelings if I don't return anytime soon," she told them. She is expected to make a "full recovery" in 6 to 8 weeks, her spokeswoman said.
