Zsa Zsa Gabor, 94, Resting After Successful Operation

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband says the 94-year-old actress is resting after undergoing an operation at a Los Angeles hospital where she also is being treated for an infection.

Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said Sunday that doctors at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center successfully reattached a tube in Gabor’s stomach that became loose and led to bleeding. The celebrity socialite was rushed to the hospital Saturday.

Von Anhalt says Gabor could be sent home within a few days. He says doctors are waiting for antibiotics to take effect on the infection.

He calls his wife a “fighter” and says he’s “very optimistic.”

Gabor has been hospitalized repeatedly since falling out of bed and breaking her hip in July 2010. She had a leg amputated in January.
