Zsa Zsa Gabor rushed to hospital
Thursday 10 November 2011
Zsa Zsa Gabor has been rushed to hospital again.
The 94-year-old former screen icon was taken to UCLA medical centre after blood began to spill out of the feeding tube in her stomach, the second time the problem has occurred in less than a month.
Her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, said: "Her stomach is bleeding and her feeding tube is coming out. It's not good.
"She's in the hospital at UCLA. It's a little worse [than last month]."
Frederic assured that although there is a risk of infection from her feeding tube coming out, he expects her to be fine.
The actress' publicist, John Blanchette, added: "[Frederic] called for an ambulance and she was taken back to the hospital, her home away from home these days."
Zsa Zsa has been in and out of medical facilities frequently since she broke her hip falling out of bed in July 2010. She had to have most of her right leg amputated in January due to an infection, and doctors advised they should take away some of the left a month later, but she refused the operation.
She has since been in critical condition twice in August and October, but has bounced back both times.
Frederic has said: "She's a big fighter. I always feel optimistic, because I know her."
