Zsa Zsa Gabor faces surgery for bleeding

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor will need surgery to reattach a tube in her stomach, family members in Los Angeles said Sunday.

Gabor, 94, was taken to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center late Saturday with internal bleeding and was being treated with antibiotics in preparation for an operation and was listed in critical condition.


"She's a big fighter," said Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt. "I always feel optimistic, because I know her."

Doctors were also expressing "guarded optimism" about Gabor, her publicist told the Los Angeles Times.

Gabor has been struggling with multiple health issues in recent years. She has been unable to walk since a 2002 car accident and she under went a leg amputation and hip replacement surgery in the last year, CNN said Sunday.

Gabor is one of three jet-setting, Hungarian-born sisters who appeared in television and movies in the 1950s-1960s. Zsa Zsa appeared in "Touch of Evil" and "Moulin Rouge" among other feature films.
