Zsa Zsa Gabor wakes up from coma
Zsa Zsa Gabor woke up from her coma last night and could go home from the hospital as early as Monday, her husband Frederic Prinz Von Anhalt told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
"She's the only thing I have, if she dies I don't have anybody else to live for," Prinz Von Anhalt told OnTheRedCarpet.com."She does not want to be left alone. I sleep in a couch with my feet dangling but that's okay, we made promises that we would take care of each other until the end. I know she would do the same for me."
Prinz Von Anhalt said that Gabor's blood pressure is normal and her infection has gone down but she is taking pain medication and still has a feeding tube, as she is not allowed to eat or drink anything orally. Gabor is trying to speak, but her husband said that all she can say is: "Yes, no, hurts me, darling."
The 94-year-old actress has said that she plans to continue treatment and does not want to die. She is currently in a comfortable hospital bed, but Prinz Von Anhalt hopes to get her home soon.
Gabor fell into a coma earlier this week after undergoing stomach surgery, a day after she was rushed back to a Los Angeles hospital, her spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
Gabor has been in and out of hospital over the past few months and was brought back after suffering complications with a feeding tube that had been inserted in her stomach.
Gabor's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Wednesday, May 18, that the actress fell into a coma sometime on Tuesday night after undergoing stomach surgery.
Von Anhalt told OnTheRedCarpet.com that day that his wife had battled pneumonia three times recently but that her heart is very strong, adding: "That's what keeps her going."
Gabor had one of her legs amputated in January after doctors found an infection and antibiotics failed to heal it.
She began her series of hospital visits after she broke her hip on July 17 after falling out of her bed while reaching to answer her telephone as she was watching "Jeopardy!."
She underwent a hip operation but suffered several complications. During one of her hospital stays in August, she had a priest read her last rites.
Gabor is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident and uses a wheelchair. She also reportedly had a stroke in 2005.Gabor is reported to have been born in Budapest on Feb. 6, 1917 as Sari Gabor. She married von Anhalt in 1986. Gabor was married to Hilton, the great-grandfather of socialite Paris Hilton, from 1942 to 1947, and they had one daughter - Francesca, who is the actress' only child.
Gabor followed her actress sister Eva to Hollywood, where she later starred in movies herself, starting in 1952 with the films "Lovely to Look At," "We're Not Married!" and "Moulin Rouge." She also played herself in a brief scene in the 1991 Leslie Nielsen cop movie "The Naked Gun 2-1/2: The Smell of Fear," in which she parodied an incident from about a year earlier in which she was convicted of slapping a police officer during a traffic dispute. She also had a cameo in the film "A Very Brady Sequel" in 1996.
