Nancy Reagan released from L.A. hospita

Former U.S. first lady Nancy Reagan was released on Tuesday from a Los Angeles-area hospital where she spent two nights after a fall and was resuming her daily activities, her office said.

The 86-year-old widow of former President Ronald Reagan was admitted to St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica on Sunday following the accident at her home.

"Doctors have released Mrs. Reagan from the hospital and she is very happy to be back in her home," Reagan family spokeswoman Joanne Drake said in a written statement.

"She has already begun resuming her daily activities," Drake said.

While at the hospital, Reagan had several medical tests that came back with normal results, Drake has said. It was not clear what caused the fall.

Reagan last month attended the Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, but has not formally endorsed a presidential candidate.

Born Anne Frances Robbins, she appeared in a series of films in the 1940s and 1950s as Nancy Davis. She married fellow actor Reagan in 1952.

She became first lady in 1981 after Reagan, the former Republican governor of California, was elected president and she helped her husband survive such blows as an assassination attempt and cancer surgery during his eight-year presidency.

She also became known during her time as first lady for renovating the White House and her "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign.

Her husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in the 1990s and she devoted much of her time to caring for him until his death in 2004.

She advocated for stem cell research, siding against prominent Republicans, including current President George W. Bush.
